Serious Dyeing Weekend

I took Friday off from work, and spent some time dyeing fabrics (again). But this time I followed actual directions from a book, Dyeing to Quilt by Joyce Mori, and created all of the colors shown here with three cool primaries.

Here's the cups all lined up, ready to have the counted number of tablespoons and teaspoons. I'm not a person who is really precise, so this exercise took a lot of concentration.
This is one of the color wheels I was trying to recreate:
Sorry, no pictures of the finished products, my camera batteries went dead when I tried to take one. No extra batteries, either. Maybe tomorrow...


  1. I can't wait to see your finished products!

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing your fabrics. Great colors!

  3. Eileen, I'll bring them to lunch on Friday! I'll try to take some pictures today (at work), it's been dark in the morning and dark when I get home because of some rainy days--the first rain we've had here since the end of July.
