First things first:
the winner of the Schnibbles Full House pastern is Sandy. Congratulations!
This weekend I decided to try some Ice Dyeing.
I really liked how my snow dyes turned out a couple of years ago. And I needed some red and oranges for a quilt in progress.
Here are two tutorials:
My set up:
soda ash soaked fabric on baker's racks over a plastic tub, I put a couple of small pieces in the tub to soak up the extra dyes.
I covered them with plastic, put them in the garage and let the ice melt and fabrics sit about 18-20 hours.
Rinse the fabrics, wash and dry the fabrics and magic!
One interesting thing which I've never had happen: an imprint of the grid was made on the fabrics[in center of photo]:
It is just in one spot. I wonder if it's something I can reproduce?
The small pieces are just what I need for my current project, and the larger ones look like a summer garden!...that sounds like an interesting quilt...
