DYEING UPDATE

These are the fabrics that resulted from the first dye run using Royal Blue Procion MX dye. Thirty fat quarters ranging from very pale blue to full strength royal blue.  Five buckets of dye in the second colour (golden yellow) were prepared and the blue pieces were placed into them in the correct order.





The change happened immediately and then the work began, keeping the fabric moving in the five buckets for twenty minutes.  After all the stirring was over the fabrics were removed, rinsed and washed. The result - 36 fat quarters in a perfectly co-ordinated pallete.  Each one interchangeable with the other.
