Here is Robins Hand Dyed quilt using the pattern Turning Twenty. She enjoys dyeing fabrics and snow dyeing like I do and was able to cut into her hand dyed stash to make this quilt.
We had a few inches of snow fall the other day and today it as -10'c so I had to get the shovel to clear the ice rink. For the last two weeks I kept thinking (hoping) this would be the last time I get to do this but no such luck...it keeps snowing and is still below freezing. I know some of you like the snow pictures but I am ready to see the lake again!
I did free hand Topo quilting design with a very bright multicolored Lava thread. I did have some trouble with thread breakage on this quilt but I am positive it was the hand dyed fabrics causing this as we both use the same poplin cotton for dyeing and it has a high thread count. I think the Lava is too thick of a thread to use with our hand dyed fabrics.
The backing was dyed too.
You can see the thread color in this picture. You can also see all the little pea size hail frozen in the ice from our thunderstorm on Sunday.
I like this last pictures as I even got my neighbors flag waving just right. It was really windy and I keep having to chase Robin's quilt to get a picture. Don't worry Robin I got most of the snow off ;)
