More Batiks

More batiks from last Monday. This one was pink and dark red, and I overdyed it in sun yellow and chinese red: This piece was a rather blah yellow. I overdyed it in dark orange and chinese red:

This piece was orange. We stamped it with a silicone pot holder and overdyed it in chinese red, sun yellow and rust:

I don't know why all of the dyes I mixed for us to use were orange, red or yellow. Well, I guess I do know, they are my favorite colors. Happy colors. My next quilt (after Christmas, when I'm caught up with longarming) will undoubtedly feature the color orange.
