You certainly didn't believe I would dye 48 yards of black, now did you?
I lost interest after 4 yards. I added black and other great colors together to make lots of
The resulting tones are as rich and lovely as I had hoped and the proof is that I want to keep them all for myself. Ha!
Bittersweet Chocolate, Aubergine, Cinnabar, Latte, Mahogany, Brick, Stone Ground Mustard and Pumpernickel...anybody got some Swiss?
There's the Swiss Cheese at the end behind the Terra Cotta, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, yada yada yada...
Love this combo of dark chocolate, dusty violet and coral sands. Too deluxe!
The camera doesn't quite pick up this teal and deep slate green, does it? The neutrals are a warmer green gray and palamino. Just so yummy. The camera washed everything out and after several tries, I just had to surrender. The deep forest greens are so dark that they don't show up at all. I can't believe how much I am loving the bittersweet chocolate. It is the richest color of the bunch.
Now, do you think you entered the wrong url and got maybe Lisa Call's blog? Well, I must admit she made a believer out of me!
My latest quilt, Picante! is so me. However, I have RED WALLS at my house, so a quilt like that would fit right in. Do you have red walls at your house? I'll bet you don't. So while it is perfectly logical for me to make a screaming quilt for my house, it is not so logical if I seriously want to sell my quilts in the real world.
I may have mentioned that I don't have a single speck of space to store another almost-prize-winning, contest-finalist, judges-choice, appearing-in-a show-catalog type of quilt. What I need to be making has got to be less screaming and more sultry and dulcet toned. Now that I have dyed the goods, I have only to fuse them and start creating.
What do you mean I was supposed to be sharing these with my students at the Hudson Valley Art Quilt Workshop?
...uh, oh yeah.
