Hand Dyed -From the Same Cloth
You come for quilts, I know. I have been madly sewing on Project Joy #9. I will definitely make the deadline but have decided it needed to be handquilted and have all sorts of embellishment. I really like it. It is of the same piece of material of the last small work I showed you hung on my tree. I can't count it as done yet but just need about two more inches and the binding.
The photo is a bit too red. But here's another of the hand work.
The cloth was a large piece of hand dyed fabric. I overdyed it and the bottom was much lighter. This is from the bottom.
The lightest green and yellow did not come form the cloth. Amazing how different one piece of cloth can look like in composition! Both pieces are about 12 x 15. I'll post with them side by side when done.
Better go- stay warm. Happy sewing, my friends.
