Handdyes and quilts

These pieces I did using the dry soda ash technique, I really like the texture I get doing it this way.

This piece I did using the snail technique, I still have trouble getting it to go all the way through the whole yard.
This little quilt is called Autumn Crossing by Jo Morton, I used the fabric line Compliments for it so it's not to Autumny. I used a panto called Happy Times to quilt it, I re-sized it by making it 50% smaller and it worked well.
This is a clients quilt, she used the fabric from Crown Royal bags and made a pineapple block using the no wast pineapple method. I really like how this quilt turned out she did a great job.


  1. They all look great, Judi! Really love the soda ash fabrics. Will you have some for sale at the show in Madison? Wow, that's coming up very soon.

  2. I have never heard of the dry soda ash technique.. How do you do it?
