Design Wall Monday – August 2

I was away at Quilting by the Lake last week taking a class on Indigo Dying  – so needless to say I wasn’t near my sewing machine but had my hands and arms in Indigo Dye. Here is a shot of my design wall at QBL (the long rectangular pieces are silk scarves).

Here are a few shots of some of the fabric I dyed.

Here is some of the Dupioni Silk that I dyed.

Any suggestions of what I could do with them? (SENDING THEM TO ONE OF YOU IS NOT AN OPTION! – Sorry!)

Stop by Judy’s Blog and see what everyone else is doing.

  1. You could send them to me too! It was my first thought. They remind me of some indigo fabric I saw at a shop here that I wanted but couldn't think what to make with it. You need some kind of design the showcases your work. What about a 4-patch posy where you cut 4 rectangles and sew them like they are swirling away from the center. Not sure how to do it but I think you could figure it out. I believe there's even a pattern called that too. What about that pattern with the moon over/behind the mountain? I saw one all in batiks and it was gorgeous. I hope this helps, even the first part…Send them to me!!!!!!!


  2. Instead of sending them to just one of us, send them to a few of us. Go ahead and put my name on the list. 🙂
    They re beautiful. I've played at my friend's house with marbling and loved it but haven't gotten into the fabric dying yet.


  3. Now you are a mind reader too…….I really think you should mail them to me :0).

    They are just beautiful…….you have to make them the highlight of something special….
    there now didn't that help?

    Happy sewing
