I looked over the blocks I had and decided I could divide them into three groups…mostly black, white, and blue, fully painted images, and multicolored waves and lines. I’ve decided to do three panels, one with each group of blocks.
I finished piecing the panel using the multicolored blocks. I overdyed the blocks, using the dye painting technique, with a straw color and a golden-yellow to soften the bold colors and make them “talk” to each other. I dyed some cottons in yellows and purples to use as accents, and have sewn together this entire panel. You only get a sneak peek of part of it at this time (sorry for the sun glare on the bottom left edge).
When I have quilted all three panels, you will see the them in their entirety. They will look quite different when they are quilted.
I hope to get the other two panels pieced in the next four days and then I’ll give you a “sneak peek” of each of them…from the studio
