The best part of the class was her examples of different shibori patterns. This is what I came home with after a full day.

Indigo Dyeing Day from Marianne Bos - Quilt Artist

Its been a very long long time since I have blogged but I am just soo excited to tell you what I have been up to today!

A lady (who met me a while ago at a fair) contacted me and asked if I would help her do some Indigo dyeing with her for a quilt she was making.  Like, how fast could I say yes!!!

Anyway today Kay came over to my house and we broke out the indigo and got to the dyeing. She was dyeing linen.

We pleated, folded, wrapped and rubber banded.

It comes out of ...
