hand dyed chevron quilt
My small group has wonderful dyeing days, where we each chip in a number of procion dyes that we share. We gather in a member's yard and wow each other in our direct application dying. At the next meeting we show off our washed and ironed fabric and are inspired to cut into them.
This chevron log cabin was inspired by my friend Erica's quilt. I can't even remember what hers looks like anymore, but I love how this turned out. Cissie brought along some silk salts that I used on the fuchia that became the border. It was quilted by Suzette in a wonderful circle pattern. I gave it to my daugher for her eighth grade graduation. I used one of Jane Sassaman's fabrics for the back.
