handdyed quilt, wallhanging, rust dyeing

After not posting for a week here is a second post in one day. The internet seems to be cooperating today and I have been able to read my email and also post these pictures in my blog. Funny all I had to do was say it was running soooo slooowww. It still is but not as bad as the last few days.

This piece is called Think Spring. I spent the day today making this. I used raw edge applique. It really was quick and fun to do. I will get the binding on it tomorrow, this will hang in my booth at shows I do have the pattern. There is another border to go around the outside with more applique but I like it this way better.
This is the quilt and pillowcase I made my grandson for his birthday next month. I'm hoping to get it quilted tomorrow I had to dye fabric for the back again I goofed and measured wrong and the fabric was to small otherwise it would of been done today.

This is my first piece of rusted fabric that I have done. I think it turned out okay but I did let it sit for 3 days before I was able to get back to it and finish it up.


  1. I know your GS is going to love his quilt...very bright and interesting pattern.

    I love the is gorgeous also. When you do that type of applique, do you fuse first, then sew around?

  2. Wow, these are all simply stunning Judi, just beautiful.

  3. I think your rusted piece turned out great. My first try looked like a slightly dirty rag!
