Quilting and dyeing or dyeing to quilt
Today is fabric dyeing day and I've decided that this week will be ice dyeing (plus a few custom Shades Packs). I got the fabric folded and soda soaked yesterday. Today comes the messy part.
After getting the fabrics ready and before meeting college friends for drinks, I was able to do the last of the ruler work on my quilt. Tonight, hopefully, I'll start the Sysyphean task of filler work. This quilt won't be done for the August UFO report but it will surely be done for September.

It is interesting (to me) to see your suspension net setup for ice dyeing.

That is some set up you have for ice dyeing. Thanks for sharing the process. Many people would not understand how much work it is to do this type of dyeing including setting up the equipment as well as designing the process.

Question for you on your process. Do you allow your fabric to dry after soaking or do you keep it wet until you're ready to pile on the ice? Thank you.
