More Dyeing, More Gardening and a Little Bit of Quilting

I just finished quilting two small pieces.  A little different than my usual work.  Not a tuning fork in sight....
Brown, pink and brown.  23" x 19"
Spikey quilt.  18" x 20"
I spent another two days dyeing this week,  Monday with Rhonda and Tuesday on my own.   Rhonda and I dyed a gradation from "intense blue" to "chartreuse."  A bit pastel, but there are some lovely colors...
 We also dyed turquoise and red-orange in 3 values:

 
On Tuesday I dyed a really nice gray value gradation:
We've had a nice amount of rain this week and the garden is very lush.  But the big show has been indoors.  Several of our orchids are in bloom!

I love your work! Just beautiful! Dyeing fabric has become one of my favorite things to do this past year! I love creating crazy colors!

I think we've all been working outdoors since good weather has finally come and for me that has been dying and sun printing. I love the colors you did and the work you're doing!

Spikey Quilt has loads of character. Love it!

I really like these even though I don't usually go for that sort of thing. It may be the colors or the fact that they are pretty geometric still. Either way, good work!
