Snow-Dyed

second attempt at snow-dyeing fabric

Just one year ago, I attempted snow-dyeing fabric.

Anxious to use my new collection of one-of-a-kind fabric, I crafted my first disappearing four-patch.

This was fun! I think it will be SO fun to quilt, based on a suggestion by Mrs. Micawber!

  1. Just like a snowflake, it's one of a kind. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    1. Thank you, Jasmine! I hadn't thought of it as one-of-a-kind, but I thin you're right!

  6. Well, it's a good thing you answered Lizard's comment because I was scratching my head trying to remember what I suggested for the quilting!

    I think you should enter this one for the Denver show. It's really striking.

    1. If the corners matched up, Sue, I would. So now I really do have to snow dye again so I can do a quilt like this again, only with meeting points, and then I can enter THAT in the DNQF!!!
