Okay so now to my dyeing story. I thought this time when dyeing a backing I would piece the fabric first and then dye it as one whole piece...sounds good right. The color and texture turned out great but for some reason one piece of fabric didn't take the dye like the rest. ??? Sigh. What did I do wrong this time?After some discussion with my other 'dyer' friends about my backing dilemma it seems to be that I might have washed that one piece in regular laundry soap instead of our dyers TNA soap...who know it would make that much of a difference! It is the same fabric but from a different bolt so that could be a factor too. So from now on I will only use fabric from the same bolt that have been washed together before I piece the backing together. I loved how the texture of dyeing the whole piece hides the center seam, it is very hard to see.
I used beige thread on the top and navy on the bottom and to prove to those nay sayers that you can't use two different color threads on top and bottom here is the proof. It is so important to learn how to use that tension knob, don't be afraid to turn it!!!
Had a little visitor check out the quilting too.
