I just love making these fabrics and I'm always tempted to keep all of them.
I have absolutely no control over how they turn out. I fold them, cover them with ice and then sprinkle the dye powders in random patterns. Even when I think I'm "planning" color I'm always surprised. Fabrics like the 3 above are the ones that I think are ideal for lots of custom quilting. There are some "flat" spaces where quilting would really show off.
Then there are other like these three that can be quilted or not quilted. They have enough design detail to stand on their own as a tapestry. If you are stuck for ideas for what to do with them check the Customer Gallery to to see how Patricia Caldwell uses them. To see all 12 new Crystals just visit the shop.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
