Truly, I do want to make something from my hand dyed fabrics. I just don’t know what!
I have some large pieces, some of which I really like. I have some smaller pieces that I also really like. I don’t make large quilts anymore, so I don’t need a ton of any fabric. But I also don’t have anything that is screaming at me to be used!
Here is some of what I’ve been looking at–
I really love this piece of fabric. Half a yard, made with soy wax and a tjap. Found out that soy wax and tjaps are harder to use than I thought! But right after seeing this, I heard about the terrible loss of firefighters in Arizona and all I could see here was an all-consuming forest fire. Not ready to use this fabric right now.
Everybody can use a piece that has some great sunset clouds…
…but I have 4 yards of it! What was I thinking?
This piece I’ve loved since I first dyed it–so much that I haven’t been able to cut into it and use it. Is there something wrong with me?
Simpler color combinations should be easier to use…not so much for me.
My favorite piece was also a soy wax experiment, with lots of different shapes used for the wax. It’s a 2 yard piece–lots of fabric for anything I can think of, but I’m just not coming up with the right idea.
Lots going on, but there are three distinct sections on this piece.
This section is giving me “city grid” ideas again.
This section is the part that is speaking most loudly to me today, but I’m not sure if I want it as background or featured…
If you have suggestions…
