shibori swap, handdyed quilt

I'm not done with this yet but thought I'd show you what I have been working on the last few days. I still need to put 3 borders on this, Its called hearts and flowers. I used all scrap fabric but did need to dye the red for the hearts and one of the borders. I still need to dye the backing fabric probably be a light blue or a light red, not sure yet.

This shibori piece is for my dyeing group swap. I used a light blue and then put it on a pole and painted on a darker blue. I did a yard like this.


  1. WOW, I love your log cabin quilt. I need to start MAKING myself do some sewing!!

  2. That is sooooo nice Judi, yummy. I just love it - the quilt that is.

    The shibori turned out nice as well. What blue did you use because I was thinking of doing a blue as well and don't want to repeat?
