The stained glass effect from the back is interesting.

I know your day wouldn’t be complete without more dyed fabrics!

The squares were made with the end of a short piece of 2x2 wood dipped in the wax.

The piece on the left has been through three different processes and will likely get a couple more layers. I’ve been experimenting with sodium alginate as a thickener and it may be used in the next application.

  1. u are on a roll! Love the multi-square print fabric in the clothesline photo.

  2. That is a great H2H quilt top! I love all the flying geese.

    That red with white rectangles in a square hand dyed piece is fabulous!

  3. What a fun quilt! I love how the blocks mirror each other diagonally. And I love the flying geese outer border, which frames the top quite nicely.

    Your new fabric pieces ROCK! Love them, especially the two in the fourth photo. Cool designs.
