Leave your mark.






For this challenge quilt:  Leave Your Mark I chose to leave marks in several ways on white cotton fabric.  First I stitched the fabric for shibori.  Then I dyed it in an indigo vat and pulled out the stitching when it was rinsed and dried and dyed the peach fabric using MX procion dyes.   The quilting marks on the blue fabric were added with indigo-dyed rayon embroidery thread.  Altogether a very satisfying way to leave marks.

  1. A gorgeous selections of blues. The seed stitching must have taken hours, but it creates lovely textures, both visual and literal.
