I was inspired by my trip to Denali Park to make a Denali card, not sure why I haven't done that before.... As I was picking out fabrics for it, I realized that none of my new 180 colors was just right for the sky....(all a little too dark) so I decided to dye my own. Some Rit dye, a Gladware container, three tries but a mere 25 minutes later, I had fabric ready to use. I used the "low water immersion" dye method, which is very quick and easy! I really wanted to start dyeing more of my own fabric this year,
(with the good fiber reactive dyes) but I haven't had the time or the body to do it...so for now I'll let the people at Starr Fabrics do most of it for me :-)
And, in case you haven't heard, the Summer Dragonfly kit is now available, I'll probably put this in the next several blog posts to get the word out :-) Click on the picture to go to the kit.

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 them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, 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!
