The Resurrection of Dyeing

It's been nearly a dozen years since I last dyed!  But my friend Kate was visiting and we couldn't think of a better thing to do than to dye. I had a whole bolt of PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabric and procion dyes, sew....out to the garage to make a big, fun MESS!
36 half yard pieces of damp fabric

Double, trouble, boil and bubble.. the dyes

All nicey, nicey in their baggies

The method I used is called Pot O'Gold that I was taught by Carol Soderlund

3 layers of fabrics in each baggie, each layer a different color.


Come back tomorrow to see the reveal (and if 12 year old dyes still work)! Until then, Color Me Quilty!
