A New Adventure

A new friend taught me the basics of quilting last week and because I can't do anything without doing it the most creative (aka difficult) way possible, I immediately decided I wanted to dye all my own fabric.
Have I ever dyed fabric before? No. Have I ever quilted before? Nope. Well let's give both a try!

My goal this weekend was to do some test strips and see where I stand:

This is the basic range I've decided to go with!
I'm excited! Soon I'll be undertaking the large (and daunting) task of dying 10 yards of cotton!

And then cutting out several hundred tiny squares.

And then sewing them back together.

And then quilting them.

What am I doing again?

    I'm still happy to help with the dyeing if you need it.
