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 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.
I am a fiber artist. Most of my work is in the form of small quilts, and fabric greeting cards.
I hope you like my blog. Thanks for checking it out.
