I few days ago I mentioned dyeing fabric for the back of my recently finished top. I did that last night and washed it out this morning.
I don’t pretend to be a precision dyer. So much of quilting is exact and patterned. I want what I do with dye and paint to be free and fun.
But even I had to laugh at this.
The background is the fabric I dyed for the quilt back. I know. It’s the color of unbleached muslin. At least I know how to dye really light pastels now.
The small fabric piece on the bottom is white, which is what I started with. The one in the middle is what I thought I was going to get based on the color of the fabric in the dye bath. The one at the top is what I was trying to get.
I’ll over dye it tonight or tomorrow and post my results. I’m sure I can do better the second time. If not, it will at least be good for another laugh.
