Space dyed cotton for quilting

The dyes came out about a week ago and I thought I would share with you the products of my labour.

The fabric was all originally white ,except the patterned stuff, and I space dyed it using all sorts of combinations of dyes. And I forgot to wear gloves so my hands were a lovely shade of turquoise too.

Now to turn it into a patchwork quilt!

Hand dyed space dyed embroidery silk

Well there I was dying some fabric when inspiration came and slapped me around the chops. Why not dye some embroidery thread!?!

So I space dyed some pale lemon thread and this is what I got. Can’t wait to stitch with it. Now I think I might be a little obsessed with it. Might need to buy some more to dye.
