You know how....
....there are some days when the sun shines, your creativity flows in a satisfying way, and all is well with the world? This wasn't one of them. So here's some of my earlier (translation = completed) work.
This is called "There Are Flying Geese in the Circle of My Life". It was a result of a challenge at my quilt group to produce a Personality Quilt, and it was a first for me in several ways. It was my first "art" quilt , my first circular quilt, and my first original design (apart from the flying geese circle, which was courtesy of Caryl Bryer Fallert).
And here is my beloved "Monet's Hexagons", another original design available as a pattern or kit from www.dyeing2design.com. this has been my best-selling pattern, particularly in Australia. Interestingly, this quilt features what I call "underdyes" - which I produced accidentally, and which provide a very soft colour that I can't reproduce dyeing the proper way.
