I have only begun to scratch the surface of this technique, but I can see that it will be lots of fun! These samples are all done with Rit dyes, which are readily available and easy to use. Since I'm not an expert, I'm not going to put directions here, just look up 'low water immersion dyeing'. I'm hoping to experiment with the fiber reactive dyes in the coming year, as those often have even better results on cotton fabric.
I hope my "12 Days of Art Quilting Techniques" have inspired you to do something creative in the coming year!

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

I am also an independent distributor for Plexus supplements, since I credit them with enabling me to be healthy enough to do all these fun things! They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
