Remember me? Remember when?

It has certainly been a VERY long time! Remember when I posted some ugly fabrics from an experimental dyeing session? Maybe this will jog your memory (if not scare you away!):

I had a blog giveaway for three pieces like this. I sent one to Patti, one to Carole, and I was unable to contact the other person so just today, I used it myself!  Here are the results. First, Patti’s piece called Reeds:

Here is Carole’s piece called Lost Ball:

Aren’t they  beautiful? Finally, here is mine: 

This measures approx. 12″ x 18″. I haven’t finished the edges yet. I was going to use a facing but since the edges of the pieces are all raw, I am trying to come up with a more “raw” finish to the edges. I may just topstitch close to the edge and call it good. Any ideas?

After a long break, it is good to be creating again :).

Until next time…..

    Thanks to everyone for taking a look and especially for leaving comments. It is truly amazing how three people can see such different things in essentially the same piece of fabric. That is what makes this so mch fun :).

  2. It is amazing how three people can come up with such different ideas with the same piece of fabrid. All are beautiful, but Reeds has me laying on the floor gasping. Very, very intrugueing interpretation of the fabric. I am in awe.


  3. The variety of work inspired by the same fabric is wonderful. Each of you has made something fine from something you considered ugly. Congratulations!

    Cut a piece of fabric one inch wide. Press it in half. Put around edge of quilt. I secured mine with hand French knots, but I think a fancy, or not so, machine stitch would work

    No ugly fabric.. and I LOVE what you did… I like the idea of a raw edge type finish.. even one of those overcast stitches some machines have.
    Good to have you back, I missed you!

    Katy, These are all wonderful and I really LOVE what you did with yours…you mixed up the bright yellow and the darker colors so nicely…it just goes to show…nothing is too ugly to be used or transformed. Great job.
