So this week I finally dragged out a pattern I bought with my daughter in Denver when my grandson was born 2 years ago. It's a great pattern, the most I ever spent on a pattern but that is because it was a "block of the month" quilt and the patterns are for 9 wonderful monsters! It's a great design and I promised my daughter I would make it for Caleb's big boy bed someday.
Well Caleb is getting a new sibling come Sept 09 so figured I'd better get started? lol I have 3 monsters on their squares and am trying out fabrics for the other 6....the patterns mention/suggest colors but the fabric choices are up the quilter.
This is going to be a fun quilt!
Then I also fit in a little experimental dyeing this week I made 5 pieces of fabric using Tahitian blue and a red..you'll see the blue on the left and the red on the right. I then mixed the red and blue together in various mixtures... The dark blue fabric was from another time. I am pleased with the end results.
Next week I hope to experiment with yellow and blue dyes......and maybe try solid coverage.
