Earlier This Week

A few days ago I did a small batch of discharging, mostly on previously hand dyed fabrics that I wasn't happy with.




I used thiox for the discharge, and I purposely took the fabrics out after just a few minutes in the bath. I wanted to tone down the colors and bring out some hidden colors, rather than remove all the color on the exposed areas.

This morning I finished my second collage quilt for February, will upload that tomorrow.

I love these!! I am crazy for discharged complex dyed fabric.

Those are really nice. Did you fold them or scrunch them to get all that wonderful patterning?

You definitely know what you are doing. . . I aspire to have that level of expertise some day. Gorgeous images of your fabric and collages.
