Last of the Hand Dyes

Here is my latest gradation. This is Deep Yellow and Lilac. I ended up with some very interesting greens. Not exactly what I was expecting, but that's part of the fun. And when you aren't using pure colors in dyeing, well then, expect the unexpected!

I mentioned in my last post about working on a quilt entry for the Blurred Boundaries exhibit. Here is a sneak peek. I have even solved my name dilemma and thought of one. I guess it just took some thinking time. By the way, I've shown you part of this quilt before. You can see the background in this post.

Oh and are you wondering about the title of this post? Well this will be the last hand dyed gradation for a week or two as I have depleted all my PFD fabric. I need to get some more ordered. I know I can squish some more fabric onto my shelves. I just know it!


  1. Love the texture to the piece you are working on; very rich.

    Okay...although they are not blueberry like the others, I love these hand dyes as well! (LOL) Nice gradations.

  2. I want to eat the fabric. It looks so delicious.

    And best of luck with the show submission. I'm helping with that show and will get to see all the juried work in person.

  3. I love that the vase appears translucent-what a great effect.

    I looked at the link for that show and the entry requirements. I am on the edge about submitting something-it is far way from me. Looks doable though.

  4. can't wait to see the finished piece for BB.

  5. Hi Terri,
    Your color gradations have been a feast for the eyes! And this quilt looks like it will be very interesting! Love the texture!! You're so inspiring!


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
