Donna B I love your fabric! Wow I think this is great.  That is really so etching I would love to learn.

Patti and Dina your fabric looks great too! Is the intensity of the colors based on how much dye you put in or how long you let it set?

Angele, I thought it looked better than the normal run of the mill panels- so much activity or animals in it to be a regular panel..  I like the look.    Ginny

Patti and Dina, your fabrics turned out very nice.  Patti, yours reminds me of a world temperature map

Patti:
wow Donna, that came out nice.  I rinsed and rinsed mine and the was still had some color.  It is now hanging up to dry, on the fence.   Heather says it will look lighter as it dries.  Here is a picture of Dina with hers, still has some rinsing yet to do. 

Patti, both of your fabrics turned out great!

Please post pictures of yours and Dina's after they are washed, dried and ironed so we can see the final effect.

As you saw, mine really became much more "muted" in intensity after the wash/dry/iron process!  

Someone asked about how you control the color and that is a very good question...  And, I am not sure there is a firm answer...this whole process is kind of like a surprise package...much like tie-dying in the 60's.

I purposely mixed my dye-batches much stronger than suggested...thinking that would make the colors more intense/deep.

But as you see here, Dina's is still very intense in the picture of her wet fabric and she did her batch as suggested.  But this picture is before the wash/dry/iron process...so we will see.

I THINK (after a couple of tries at this) that the depth of the snow (and thus the amount of diluting of the dye by the snow) has more to do with the final color than the actual strength of the dye.  I will be trying that theory next...so we shall see!

Angele, great baby quilts!  This one's my favorite...

Angele:

Is that a panel, or did you applique the animals?  I just love it!

It's taken me a while but I finally finished my UFO project for this month. This will be for my DD, should have been for her birthday last year but hopefully I will get it quilted before her birthday this summer.

Beautiful pieces Patti. I agree with Gini; yours does have the look of a map. Très cool.

Diana,  I'm with you.  not my thing either, I'm done some, like that SunBonnet Sue quilt but my hands start cramping on me. 

Perhaps you're gripping your work too tightly. I have hand issues but I love needle turn appliqué and hand sewing. I completed this yesterday:

This is my first block of "Vintage Valentine" many of you would remember my talking about this pattern. Now I'm doing.

Here is a photo of my snow dyed fabric, washed, dried and iron.  As you can see some of the intensity of color is gone.  Now I am looking forward to experimenting some more.
