This is not exactly the color I was after but for my first attempt (self-taught of course), I am not totally unhappy. Both pieces need more dye. I was thinking about trying a low water immersion–light blue for the spiral but would like suggestions before proceeding. I would be grateful for any ideas left in comments.
I have been seeing some beautiful mandalas on various blogs and decided I need one as a backing for my Tumbling Stars quilt. These first two were just experiments which I can use as backings for charity quilts. I’m going to buy some different dyes tomorrow and I’ve ordered the Fabric Dyer’s Dictionary. Might as well get intense!
