    Tie dye

    I was practicing some different techniques one day and ended up making them all into this. I'll probably use it as a picnic or beach blanket.

    Nice tie-dyes! I can see something like this done with tie-dyed t-shirts....if there are still some of those hanging around.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Did you dye your own fabric? I have been looking for tie dyed cotton fabric but the only tie dye I found was canvas.
    Your quilt is wonderful!

    Thanks! I did dye it myself. I use to tie dye a lot but these days I'm too busy with the kiddos.
