Fabric Dyeing, New Projects, and Classes
Tuesday, March 5, 2013
I spent last week hanging out with Megan in her new digs up in Minnesota! We sewed, dyed fabric, shopped, and made a trip up to Minneapolis to visit Mall of America and Ikea. We went into one shop at the mall, the Sanrio store (Hello Kitty!)! It's only the 3rd or 4th time I've been in one. I really wanted the giant Chococat plush behind me, but sadly it wasn't for sale. I managed to escape with only a few things!
Jacquard Procion MX dyes and the dyeing method outlined in Malka Dubrawsky's Color Your Cloth.
For more on my dyeing adventures see my fabric dyeing flickr set.
Alexia Abegg's Marcelle Medallion quilt (seen on the cover of Love Quilting & Patchwork) happening on instagram (I'm @jenib320 on there!). Follow hashtags #medallionalong and #marcellemedallion! This is my fabric pull for the quilt!
You can find the quilt pattern in the new issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting and in Alexia's book, Liberty Love.
