The third Stitching To Dye piece went into the second dye bath this weekend. I wanted to make sure it was done for my Art Quilt Group meeting Tuesday night.
To recap, here is the finished quilt before dyeing.
I applied the dye by hand with the quilt in a flat tray so I could get the dye the way I wanted it. I really wanted to make sure some of the yellow showed through.
The big surprise was the way the thread took the dye. Some dyed yellow, some dyed raspberry, and some dyed somewhere in between. It may not show in the picture, but it gave the look of variegated thread.
This is my favorite of the Stitching To Dye quilts so far.
I have a few things I want to finish before I move on to the fourth quilt in this series, but the design is in the works.
