Mother/Daughter Fun: Fabric Dyeing

My mother and I squeezed in some pre-Easter dyeing fun.  In lieu of eggs, we added bright colors to clothing and fabrics.  She brought a few white cotton items with her and picked up a few more during our shopping excursions.

Of course I couldn't just watch her have all the fun and I too joined in on the fabric dyeing fun.

I always say that waiting for the fabrics to batch is the hardest part of the fabric dyeing process!!  Fortunately for you...you won't have to wait 24 hours to see the finished results...here they are!

We also dyed some half yard cuts of pimatex cotton.  Some of these pieces have already gone off to good homes with fellow quilters.  I am hoarding a few of the other cuts to be used in a future quilting project (or two!!)
