pair of ice dyed quilts

I think the main reason my projects don’t find there way here is that I just don’t stop and take pictures like I used to.  In May, I made a fabric basket for a friend’s birthday.  The pattern was from Anna’s book, Handmade Style.  I was so happy with how it turned out that I snapped a quick pic with my phone and delivered it right away.  Later, I thought I would write a little post about it and then realized that all I had to share was this.

The back is a print with indigo stripes on a off-white background.

It’s made with some of my favorite ice dyed cottons and a mid-weight chambray.  The back is a gold and black print.

I think this quilt looks brilliant with all the lichen on the wall.

tiny shop update

sunny days caravan tote zipper

I have added a few totes to my shop.  The weather is finally starting to cool down.  Thank goodness for cardigan weather!  It was too hot to ice dye for quite a stretch there.

Hopefully, I will be able to get some new fabric ready to go in the next few weeks.  If there is interest, I was thinking of adding some yardage and bundles of some of my dyed fabric to the shop.

School starts next week so that should free up some time for me to get to work on my project list.  As much as a dread the idea of using an alarm clock again, I’m looking forward to some uninterrupted stitching time.

Citizens of Textile sale this weekend

I’m one of this month’s featured artists over at Citizens of Textile this month.

I’ve made a small collection of totes, some zippered pouches, and a couple of special baby quilts.  Each piece uses some of the snow dyed cotton I made late this winter.

The range of shades and values created with the snow dye process are pretty inspiring.  It’s made for a fun one a kind group of projects that I’m so excited to share.
