    Took a class last year on fabric dying, painting and folding. It was alot of fun. I like the way the hair came out the best, used up almost a whole spool of thread. I no sooner got the piece home and through the door when my daughter claimed rights to it. Has anyone done this before and if so, did you like it?

    Wow, great job! I've never dyed fabric, but it looks like something I'd like to try.

    I really like that. I too dye a lot of my fabric but haven't tried anything like that. You did a beautiful job.

    Very pretty. I can see why your daughter claimed it.

    This is so beautiful. That does not really describe how much I like the quilt. It is so wonderful to be able to actually make your own fabric. Have you ever tried snow dyeing? I have been enjoying that. It makes Wisconsin winters more tolerable.

    No - have not tried snow dyeing, nor have I heard of it. Can you explain more?
