Dyed Again

I did some more fabric dying this past week. It take a few days before I can show all the fun colour. First is the fabric in the large zip lock bags. I have dyed 16 pieces of 1m Kona cotton. I leave them for about 24 hours to batch. 

The second day, I wash out my fabric. First I hand rinse each fabric. Then I washed about 8 fabrics in the machine together. The fabric gets 2 full longer cycles with the extra rinse. Dry and fold, hoping that I do not have to iron each fabric (I hate to iron). 

I needed to do more dying for some Door Prizes. The Edmonton and District Quilter's Guild has us pay for our ads with prizes. It only makes sense to me to give pretty fabric. I was having trouble making up nice packages. Some of the fabric I did not want to part with. 
Also the Black Gold Quilt Patch also has a quilt show Oct 16 and 17th 2015, and I want to donate a door prize there too. 

These are the last 5 prizes I needed for the Edmonton guild's year end. Next Fall we start over again. 


  1. I can see why you were reluctant to part with any of these. They are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful colors Cathy- really rich and will be wonderful fabrics to use in your winners quilts.. I am sure it was a fun process seeing how the colors would come out.

  3. So many pretty fabrics, I can see why you don't want to part with them.

  4. Your colors look so "Spring-y"! Like Easter eggs!
