another ice dyed piece transformed


Recommended Posts

I attended our guild retreat this week-end and showed the ladies how to Ice Dye this is what they created.We had so much fun

.I took my piece and quilted it. I extended the design elements of the ice dyed piece into the large borders. I used the new superior thread Omni Varigated thread called Harlequin. the runner started out 14" x 56" now with the shirt weight denim borders it is 48" x 77"  I will be able to use it as a summer throw or a table cloth for our large table and enjoy it.

Terry, I'd love to learn the technique you used to obtain the curved design.  I too have a blast with ice dyeing.  I just used purple and robins egg blue and the purple was red violet and isn't nearly as pretty as we hoped for and wanted.  it will still be used and enjoyed.

The gals did a wonderful job and they all are beautiful.

 

Your quilt is quite pretty!    Love the way you used the design to quilt the circle design into the blue.

Rita the curvy design was so easy. Lay the fabric down find the center on one side, now mark 10" in from the ends on the other side. grab those three points and twist them all together  now you have 1 cone shape you could tie it but i just lay it in a circle and cover with ice and dye. I hope that helps if you have any question please feel free to ask. I would like to see pictures if you make one. I want to make more of these.

Many Thanks, Terry, I definitely will try that when the work on this house is finished.  Right now the house Has to Take TOP priority, as we are under a time constraint.

 

 To verify,  First I ay it out.. flat? find the center,  then on one end take it up 10 inches from the end, and on the other do the same, or do I find the half way from the center and the end?

Yes you were right the way you said it the first time. if you look at the piece I made the points I grabbed are the center of the half circle designs. there is one point on one side and two points on the other side then twist all three together.

Terry i keep coming back to look at these fabulous dyed pieces. I looked into Susan's class but I missed the sign up.

Can you tell me how they folded the design the students on the left are holding?  I just love the idea of making these for a retreat I'm hosting this fall and they would make a fun project!
