Fryeber dye PantoneLast Saturday, I was in Winona, MN, teaching my Four Ways to Dye with Hilary Frye class through the Bluffview Quilt Shop. We had a great time on a beautiful, sunny day dyeing cotton fabric with Procion MX dye. The picture above has some of the samples I brought to show my students. I think their favorite technique was the soy wax batik. soy-wax-batikLook at all the lovelies they have hanging on the clothesline. These are just some of the colorful and textural pieces they created throughout the day.
