I wish I was one of those people who can write fun stories to go along with their newsletters. I'm particularly thinking of the creative people who write recipe blogs. They have paragraph after paragraph telling the story of the experiments and inspiration for the recipe. I'll be honest, I never read that stuff. I scroll right to the bottom to get the the recipe. But I do admire their writing creativity.
I'm not a storyteller. I'm a facts person and the fact is that I got to have some fun last week making some new Shibori fabrics using some new colors. That's it, there's no other story! But before we get to that I have a gradient as the fabric of the week.
Fabric of the Week - Apple Cider
Apple Cider is the fabric of the week this week and it's 20% off through Sunday. I love the deep, rich autumnal colors in this gradient. You could get a lot of different leaves from this one fabric. It could also be a bold sunset background. It's all up to your imagination!
I've been itching to dye more Shibori for a couple of months but there's always been some other priority. I finally couldn't wait any longer and set aside the day for Shibori dyeing last week. I had a fun time playing around with some new non-traditional colors. Each of these pieces is 1/2 yard.
If you prefer variety instead of large individual pieces there are these 4 Stash Packs. Each Stash Pack contains 8 fat eighths of Shibori. Each has a nice variety of color combinations. Marcy George used a Stash Pack of Shibori for her art quilt shield.
Check out all of the Shibori fabrics in 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.
