Hand dyed fabric

I have so much hand dyed fabric and I was thinking of doing "Baby Dear Jane". I have admired Dear Jane quilt for many years and bought the disk and the book some years ago. Now is the time to start. I signed up for Rainbow Jane at the twiddletails store, but it does not start until october, I can't wait that long, so I decided to use my hand dyed and have already done my first one. Will post a photo of it to morrow. 


Some pictures from a workshop in Reykjavik in June. Dyeing with Rust.

24 hours later, it is washed and dried with some new pattern. I did not put plastic between front and back so the pattern came through, which is not bad.

This is a quilt I made for my oldest grandson when he was 14 years old, he will be 18 next sunday. The fabric I dyed with Procion MX and printed photos, one for each year.
