That is gorgeous! Hand quilting and I are old enemies. I keep trying and it keeps laughing at me. Beautiful colors!

Are you hand-dying and painting your own fabrics now?

They're gorgeous!

Thank you, Ma'am. I have to use a needle puller these days to hand-quilt, so I only do very small projects (this one is about 11" square.)

For this piece I did, but just as an experiment (usually I leave the hand-dyeing up to a friend who is a master at it.) To get this look, I only used two colors -- Luminarte's wild plum and ginger peach. They're self-blending, luminous metallic watercolors and with judicious application of water they form the most amazing color combinations.

Can't ever wash it, but what the heck -- it's an art piece. :)
