Compost Dyed Quilt Fabrics

Here are some of the cloths on the line at dusk. I used alot of millet, dahlia and goldenrod in the compost dye mix and am really happy with how they turned out. For me the most dificult part is the PATIENCE it takes to wait for the magic to happen. Fortunately it has been so hot that the process is going as fast as it ever will.
The small pic to the right is a closeup of one of the cloths. It looks like marble. It is going to be difficult to part with some of these but that IS the idea afterall. This coming weekend is my first time ever vending at a quilt show. I hope the attendees enjoy these fabrics as much as I do! The show is the 37th annual Sully Quilt and Fiber Arts Show and Sale on Sunday Sept 12th at the Sully Historic Site in Chantilly VA. To make for an interesting weekend I'll be doing a craft show in East Berlin PA on Saturday. I managed to talk my friend Kipp into doing the same thing. After this schedule it may be 'former friend' Kipp!
