First Friday in February

More low water immersion (LWI) dyeing experimentation- 

These pieces were dyed in small bins, all scrunched up, using the same two colors (Chinese Red and Warm Yellow).  The darker one was dyed using a stronger solution, the lighter one was watered down (sorry, no exact measurements).

Same with these two pieces, they were both dyed with Boysenberry and Intense Blue, at different strengths.

And I used the boysenberry/intense blue pieces with some ice-dyed fabric I already had.  Using a similar color pallet when dyeing is great--all your fabric is from the same (or similar) color families.

This quilt top only took about a day to sew together.  Adding it to the pile of UFOs ready to be quilted....

More dyeing, this time using the Parfait Method.  Read more about how I did it on And Then We Start it on Fire.

Linking up with Off The Wall Fridays today!


  1. I've been following you on "And Then We Set It On Fire" and love what you are doing.

  2. The purple piece just radiates out fabulous color. I can't wait to see how you quilt it.

  3. I can really see how working with related fabric makes a piece glow. Cut and re-pieced, the value changes make an awesome quilt top.

  4. Laura, your fabrics are just beautiful!
