Overdye projects

It was fun sharing what I learned about over-dying fabric with the Falls Quilt Guild at the Feb. meeting. This was just using Rit dye over top of fabric that I really didn’t like. Left over fabric, inherited fabric and that “What was I thinking?” fabric purchases. The first experiment involved cutting the same fat quarter into pieces and over dying with a variety of colors. It is really interesting to see what the different colors do with different fabrics.

Last spring I blogged about experimenting with 3 colors of dye on a variety of fabrics. I finally got around to experimenting using the fabrics with a print, solid white and solid grey. You can click here to see the previous post on dying.
I have been facinated with the “Modern Quilt” look and thought I would experiment. Unfortunately the tops have not been quilted yet.

Not sure which one I like the best, might depend on the quilting.
