Every wondered what 200 yards of fabric looks like? Well, I found out. Normally I order 400 yard, 100 yards per roll, easy to handle. But instead this shipment arrived with two 200 yard rolls. Fabric wrestling at its finest.
Not to worry, I am in the middle of dying all of my fabric for marbling and updating the photos and color selection on my web site www.marbled-arts.com The new photos are much larger and easier to view. Below you can see a few of the new beauties. Blue-Green is always a favorite.
Tangerine is becoming popular. I cannot make up my mind, if this is orange or yellow. Depends on what you put next to it.
Chartreuse, just makes me smile, now in dark, medium and light.
Pansy Purple, rich deep dark purples.
Yellow, because it is always hard to find a good clear yellow.
Fire and Emotion Red, Yum!!!
The lupine have exploded. I was gone for a few days at a Quilt Show and was shocked at how fast they grew. Blooms and bees everywhere. Gives a new meaning to “This place is buzzing”.
A Few Fox Gloves have also appeared. They are wild and just show up when and where they feel like it. More are on the way.
And best of all Miss Molly and I have a new Deck. This is where we spend our afternoons reading.
Little Monsters in the Waved Icarus Design is our latest Featured Fabric. Little Monsters because one day I noticed that many monsters and critters on kids fabric were this color. And Waved Icarus Design reminds me of all the new growth sprouting.
I have posted this wall-hanging before. But just to recap many of you said you couldn’t cut you Snow Dyed Fabric. I chose the fabric and my sister Karen put this together for me. And many of you have fallen in love with the idea. Recently I was delighted to see what was inspired by a yard of Snow Dyed Fabric and the Pavers pattern.
Karin Rainer calls her creation, “Can’t Cut That Fabric”. I think I’m in LOVE! Now I have all sorts of new ideas rolling around in my head. Just wait and see.
Orchid is a wonderful rich color. After about a month with show on the ground I am already dreaming of Summer and beautiful colors bursting out of the ground. Sigh!, guess it’s going to be a long Winter. Orchid Hand marbled in the Freestyle Design.
Karen Nickelson found this orphaned wallhanging at the Goodwill. Felt like the very light center looked like a bullseye, a distraction from the beautiful colors. Hummm! Here’s her solution.
She chose Shiva Iridescent Paintstiks and a stencil to help add some interest, texture and color to the center. Helped to pull the piece together. And yes she got the paintstiks and stencil from www.marbled-arts.com Can’t wait to see what it look like quilted.
