This post concludes my blogging about my "Dye Happy" class at Cherry Tree Quilts in Summerland, British Columbia. My second fabric line with Northcott is coming along and I have a date with Electric Quilt this coming week to design my second pattern. This is a post about various other ways we used colour on cloth.

The entire "Dye Happy" class, each holding a piece of their work.

This is what the world outside our classroom would have seen!
There are always so many photos to share after a dyeing class. I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration. I shall be immersing myself in Electric Quilt 7 now. Wish me luck!
