More Colour on Cloth

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.

More flour paste resists:

Marilyn's flour paste resist looks a little landscape-like.

Denise's flour paste resist ... perfect for old walls.

Students worked on a painting using thickened dyes on the last day. This is Sue's:

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

Timmy-Jeanne and I with her painting of crotons.

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!
