Back to the Stars
When we were in Winnipeg yesterday I stopped in Fabricland to see if I could find any border fabric since it seems that Joannes has no more of the one I really wanted. It's the one on the left side. The top left is a hand dyed piece that I made last week. I like it but maybe it is a bit dull. The one on the top right is the piece I bought yesterday. I like the color but the pattern seems a bit rigid and square. I might try a second dye session to see if I can get a bit more contrast between the yellow and brown. On this one the brown pretty well covered the yellow.
Of course, you can't go to a fabric store and only get one piece. The picture is much more dull than the real fabric. The one in the middle has a nice golden glow. The rainbows are much much brighter. They will find their way into my next wonky quilt I'm sure.
