Following the ins and outs of my Quilting Friends...

A few weeks ago, I taught Jude's method of fabric weaving to my quilting friends. You can see that here.
Some of them have been busy embellishing and even doing more weavings. Click on the images for a closer view.


Anita's been busy weaving

Debbie embellished her weaving with fabric photos of her
2 granddaughters and added lots of bling. It will be a gift for them.

Kay did lots of embellishing and even cut holes to reveal the bottom layer.

Kay also did  this weaving leaving spaces in between revealing the backing.


And Jude has been doing some 'cloth whispering' this week and has lots of followers. I've been playing along. If you'd like to join in, go here. Scroll down to her entry made Dec. 6th, so you can start at the beginning. This is what I've done so far. Click on the image for a closer view.

I would like to know the blue fabric you are using. I just love them.
I left my e-mail on Jude blog the other day she advised me not to post e-mail publicly. I really hope you can answer this one.

Some fun projects! I couldn't resist adding a bit of lace to the bottom of my blue stripes too. :)

hi Susan,
some of the blue fabric is store bought and some of it is fabric i dyed many years ago. there are several different blue fabrics in the picture so i'm not sure exactly to which one you are referring.

I will need to buy my fabric for future cloths. I don't know how to dye. I am a newbie to this and have no clue. =o) Can you point me in a direction to start? I really appreciate any and all help.
For my trees cloth, I am using some of my mothers clothing. I lost her this year, so this lil cloth is my first try. Just my way of holding her near.
Thank you
Susan

susan,
i am not an expert on dyeing and the only dyeing i do now is the natural kind with things found in nature and things like onion skins and beets. i suggest you google "dyeing fabric at home" for lots of good information. also, if you want to do natural dyeing, the book 'Eco Colour' by India Flint is a great resource. If you scroll through my blog, you will find some info on natural dyeing. You can send me an e-mail, if you want more info by going to the profile page of my blog.
have fun, deanna

Weaving global + local, give + take - that´s great...

Jude's way of working slower and listening while sewing is hard to
stop once begun! I'm also enjoying her short videos. Thanks for sharing your group's explorations.
