Dying Fabric

I really love to dye my own fabric:

Coffíe plates

Again I have found joy and inspiration in using the technique from Vikki Pignatelli. My friend Lone Schaadt showed the idea. If you are only drinking one mug of coffie why not protect the table a bit. Use the coffie plates.

Last week I finished a quilt for my mother to celebrate her 80 years birthday. Most of the fabric I have dyed and some of it is bought. It has been a hard work, but also very funny and I have learned a lot sewing it. Here you can see pictures from the process a the finished quilt.

I am working with my EQ program and every time I think that it is funny. But to get the results made in stitching is something else. I can imagine that my computer products are sewed, but it doesn’t work so fast. Therefore I decided to try some of the blocks I made on my computer, and to use my home dyed fabrics. This is the result. I am satisfied with the blocks and the sewing, but I am not content with the brown ending of the quilt. I have learned that I must train free machine quilting and to use the special binding foot for my sewing machine.

I snapped this photo on one of our trips round to the summer house. The small river is a place we often stop to have a rest and trough the years this place has been place we remember. I saw the tree and its reflection in the water. There was a motif I could use for embroidery. I have decided to do more of this kind of sewing, because it can combine my photo interest and my sewing interest.
