Frieda Anderson's Fabric Dye Class

Here is the fabric that I dyed in a class that a friend and I took together.
We had so much fun and the fabric are so brilliant. 
The dye is ready 
Color, Color, Color

 here is Frieda dyeing "friestyle"

Here are some of the colors after washed, dried and ironed.

We dyed 48 fat eighths, Freida set up the dye so that we would cover the color wheel. 
If you have a chance to take this class it is well worth it. This class has opened up a new door for me, I can not wait to dye again. I am ready to combine my quilting with hand dyed fabrics. Check out Frieda's schedule HERE

Thank you Frieda we had a great time.

Block of The Month - Madness

Some friends and I have started 3 BOM. We will post our pictures every month on our Flickr Group that you can find here The BOM Quilters Please feel free to join us. Here is a list of the BOM that we will be doing, all will be starting in April 2014

The First BOM is from the blog "Don't Call Me Betsy" she has a great blog check it out. The first block for Lucky Star Jan 2013 we will start in April 2014 but you can go at the pace that works for you going ahead and finishing all in a month or slowing down and take your time. The fun part will be seeing everyones progress, fabric selection and comments/suggestions.
