Customer Gems - Gene Black
This week's inspiration comes to us from Gene Black. Gene recently won one of my giveaways for a collection of my "waste" fabrics. These are strips of fabric that I use when dyeing gradients. They get amazing textures on them from that process. I don't but rather save them for giveaways (hint, hint).
In this quilt Gene used a technique that he learned from watching an episode of The Quilt Show. Tula Pink demonstrated the method for making the sections for this quilt. He combined the hand dyes with shirting fabrics to great effect.
For sharing, Gene received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.

Thanks Vicki. That quilt is one of my favorites to snuggle with when I am reading. It got quite cold here Saturday afternoon, so I enjoyed it while I played games on my iPad. I keep it draped on my recliner so I can enjoy looking at it every day.
