You put the orange in, you take the orange out...


Here's the other piece of my fabric that's been wandering around the world. It's been overdyed while wrapped on a pole, and had other images added to it. It's a sister piece to the earlier post - they looked very similar
when they were sent away. See how differently they've come out!









This is a folded piece I dyed yesterday when I was in a blue'n'orange mood.



























And this is the photo that the heading refers to. I've dyed up these fat quarter gradations to make a sample for Dye'n'Sew class I'm developing. The colours are (l to r) black, chocolate brown, coffee, rust orange, bright orange and tangerine.

I don't think the bright orange really fits into this group - tell me what YOU think.

while I'm a favorite to Orange Shirley.. I'm thinking that it doesnt belong... it seems just a little too much out there.. if there was just a bit blue added to it to brown it up some it would work... but I love the color.. did you use Tangerine?

Keep the orange - there are no misfits in this collection.
Help !!! I fear I'm getting the dying bug. If I had known it was so contagious I may not have come nosying here .

Love your middle piece. Nice mood!
I'd leave in the orange and the tangerine; otherwise, there is no other strong balance for the black, and it just becomes rather washed out and dull. Boring, even. Look at your sunrise: it has the black, the grey, the brown, and the bright orange and yellow, along with the lighter colors. You can't go wrong following nature. I, too, love the top fabric, a happy, happy color. Terry
