My most recent project is a fun swingy pullover top. Yes, I have the pattern on my website. I started with PFD White Cotton fabric and a Tone on Tone White Cotton Fabric.
Hand Dyed everything Blue Green. I love the variety of hand dying the cotton fabric, it turns Tone on Tone into something really fun and unique.
Finished top, yippie, had the right light for a good photo.
Back, fun to wear and fits nicely. The pattern was easy to make.
Now, for a behind the scenes look. This is my favorite place to take photos of samples. Braving the snow was easy after digging out my gaiters.
Beautiful if you are working from home.
Time for a new Pavers Kit. This one I’m calling Autumn. Rich gorgeous Batiks in beautiful Autumn colors, all set in a stunning Hand Dyed Dark Chocolate Brown. Color that make me dream of going for long walks in the Forest. Miss Molly, want to go for a truck ride?
You can almost get a whiff of the forest.Finished top, no time yet for quilting. You will find the kit with or without the pattern on my web site.
Yippee! I just got Summer Pavers Kit Sample together. I wanted bright, popping color that make me think of Summer. I will use the leftovers from the Blocks to do the Binding. Yes, Summer Paver is all batiks and can be found on my website with or without the pattern.
I am always looking for patterns to show off my hand made fabrics. In this case I have mixed my Snow Dyed fabric with some beautiful batiks. I fell in love with Outside the box, because it has a different look, more modern. It’s not hard to assemble, but can be tedious. The instructions are excellent and in color. I can’t wait to see what it looks like quilted.
I do believe Spring is here. My Lupine is blooming and I will have Fireweed later in the Summer. But right now, I have two gorgeous patterns to show you.
For Lupine I used primarily My Hand Dyed Fabrics. Light, Medium, and Dark Purple for the flower. Light, Medium, Dark Green Hand Dyed and a Dark Green Hand Marbled for the Foliage. Straw color Batiks for the grasses. Scraps of White and Teal Radiance Silk/Cotton for the Dragonfly. Light Blue Patina for the background and Dark Blue Batik for the Boarders. Stay tuned for the quilting.
For Fireweed The Background and Foliage is much the same, Light, Medium, Dark Green Hand Dyed Fabric and a Dark Green Hand Marbled for the Foliage. Straw color Batiks for the grasses. Light Blue Patina for the background and Dark Blue Batik for the Boarders. The Fireweed Flower is done using my hand Dyed Pink and Radiance Silk/Cotton in White and Berry. And stay tuned for the quilting.
I can’t wait to start quilting. I found a new lighter weight fusible web in the middle of making samples for Lupine and Fireweed. I really love it. Quilting will be the final test. And Yes, I have it on order and will let you know when it arrives.
