Shall I - Shan't I

I have just received a delivery of two big rolls of crisp white cotton fabric to get ready for some up coming workshops. It is just screaming out to be dyed LOL. I haven't made a quilt in a long time and have been toying with the idea, so went through some quilt designs I have tucked away. This one I like being bold and quite geometrical. I pulled out my fabrics and put these together as I know I can reproduce these colours successfully, well as close to as is possible with hand dyes. Can't make up my mind, shall I , shan't I - what do you think?
I am frantically washing all this fabric to get the kits ready, but there are big black clouds looming, they did say showers developing, I hope they meant like 3 this afternoon, not 9 this morning :( think I'm going to have a lot of wet fabric hanging around as the rains going to last for days!! My leaky roof will curtail all dyeing activities until the sun decides to shine again.

Go with your first instincts. Something set the design bells ringing so go with it. You sound enthused with the idea already.


Hi, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!

Thought I would hop over to see you and yours!! I love these vibrant colours, it would be nice to use these and dye your own fabric. Your quilt is sure to be a cheerful one!!
