I managed to get the first batch of gradations through the washer and ironed today, and here they are. I am now on my eighth color using the same soda ash solution and so far they are all looking good. These are not the bright colors that usually come out of my dye studio. In my art quilts, I find that I am most comfortable using more muted shades - so these will not be for sale, but will be for my own work.
By tomorrow, I will be washing out a second batch. Stay tuned!
