Sun and Moon Series

I have created 3 new abstract quilts: Sunrise, Harvest Moon, and Eclipse.  These bold designs are a departure from my usual work, but I wanted to challenge myself to go in a new direction.  I am very happy with the results.

Ice Dyed Fabric

Ice dyeing seems to be trendy these days, so I thought I'd give it a go. I soaked some fabric in soda ash and water for about 30 minutes, and let it drip so that it was almost dry.  Next I put the fabric on a plastic screen that was elevated in a large plastic container, put a mound of ice on top, then sprinkled dye over the ice.  It took a long time for the ice to melt. I left it alone until the next day, rinsed it out and put in the washing machine.
 I like the unpredictability of the process.
