Paintbrush Piecers Quilt Talk Continued

Another technique I enjoy for applying color to fabric is dye. I love to apply dye to manipulated fabric - shibori - as in the silk organza jacket above.

"Six Colorful Sisters in a Small House"

"Merlot" is also primarily dyed rayon and cotton fabrics. It, too has been shown all around the globe!

"Dancing til Dawn"

"Crazed and Confused"

"Chickadee Conclave"
