Summer time.....

....and our creativity is flowing! We added another Quiltirol afternoon to the schedule (normally we have a summer break from July to August and continue in September) but when Annemarie told us about fabric dyeing with all kinds of leaves we were all very happy to meet again and see what´s in store with this technique.

Annemarie had already done a lot of this dyeing with leaves according to the book "Naturdruck mit Pflanzenfarben auf Stoff, authors Brunhilde Scheidmeir, Fritz Jeromin, Andreas Scheidmeir"

A lot of our members brought all kinds of leaves and branches so the choice was big - it took some time to do the layout, rolling up and "steaming" the fabrics but it was worth for all the fun. The results were surprising, unexpectedly beautiful and very inspiring for what to do next!


I will use my samples for a small autumn quilt that I have as a backlog (which I have many) using the design from Michelle Engel Bencsko, Turning Leaves (one of the Make It Sew Projects from Cloud 9 Fabrics).
