That was a fun video. You make it look very easy. I can't wait to have time to explore dyeing my own fabrics! Thank you for posting this.

Way back around Easter time, I made a set of nesting baskets in Easter colors. Of course, I’d been meaning to make something like this for over 2 years! A local customer of mine asked me to make me a set when I had time. She asked if I could put a plastic liner in the smallest basket so she could store pens in it. I thought about that for awhile, and decided that she needed a smaller, taller, pencil cup. Smart cookie hubby solved my issue of how to line it with plastic without the plastic showing on the folded edge by suggesting I just put a hard insert inside, a pint jar was perfect!

Nice work! Practical, and fun. I have had a lot of success with stiffening fabric projects by using the plastic needlework grids you can get at most any craft store. You can quickly hand-stitch elements of the plastic together in any size or shape (including cylinder shapes). Also, I have found that my sewing machine can top stitch right over the fabric, thin batting, and plastic very easily. (I'm new to G+ but I hope to post my more creative craft photos soon.)

I can finally reveal my secret project! ! Last month when I filmed 2 episodes of Quilting Arts TV I also filmed a workshop DVD.

Entitled “Dyeing to Stitch”, I take people through my process. The entire workshop focusses around my Jewel Tone Palette. I start by showing how I mix my dyes and dye single hue fabrics.The recipes for all 6 of the jewel tones are included on the DVD!

Next, I illustrate 6 different ways to dye multicolor fabrics. I then talk about color theory, show how I use my “Candiotic Table of Elemental Color” and walk you through the choices I made to find the perfect chartreuse. Then finally I illustrate my “free motion machine sketching”, and the ways I work with fabric so that everything I do reflects the uniqueness of things that I make.

Oh, a detail I’m hoping a couple people want to know – the DVD’s will be available in about a month! Woot!

** All these photos were taken by the awesome Helen Gregory, the Managing Editor of Quilting Arts & Cloth Paper Scissors, and my rock throughout this somewhat stressful process. Why I don’t have a picture of the two of us together I do not know, but I hope to remedy that soon! Helen is the calmest person ever, and is excellent at talking me down when I’m at the edge of crazy town! Her calmness, however, NEVER gets in the way of her enthusiasm for art quilts, she is a JOY to work with!

Story
Tagline
Candied Fabrics: Art and Design for People who love Color!
Introduction
I’m a mom (to 2 boys, 10 & 14), a wife (my husband is a musician/university administrator), a biology teacher to non-biology majors at the University of Redlands, and…an art quilter, struggling to fit all these hats on my head (note: none of these hats is that of a housecleaner!)

I have been quilting for almost 30 years. I began dyeing fabrics to use in my quilts 14 years ago and grew from reinterpreting traditional quilt patterns to creating my own style of art quilts. I am constantly inspired by the color and patterns I see around me.
