Dye Workshop today...

A beautiful day... and, oh my!
Beautiful fabrics!!!
This is what my backyard looked like
just a few hours ago.
We began at 8 a.m. this morning
and finished about 1:45 p.m.

 This technique was an attempt
to make a color gradation in the fabric.

 The red on the left...
and the yellow below (left)
are a good example. 



These were our FQs that we dyed.
We also dyed half yards.
For those, we folded and clamped,
scrunched and rubber banded...
You'll have to wait to see those on another post and day
as everyone took them home in baggies.
That fabric (as well as the FQs)
needs to go through the washer.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
