I tea dye and have a cup of coffee. The tea smells fantastic!
One of my fabrics is too bright and crisp. I am tea dying all of them.
This is what I am working on, but the fabrics are clashing, even though they have the same colors.
I need them to blend together better.
Boiling water and tea bags.
Add more tea - loose hibiscus tea. Jewels --- I did not use all your tea - just some old stuff.
Mix and stir.
Wait at least one hour.
I can't wait for it to dry to see if it worked. Still too wet!
I am participating in a quilt challenge offered through Quilts by Barb's Quilt Retreat. This will be the 11th year I have attended and this is the 6th year she has offered the quilt challenges. Click Here for a link for quilt retreat information. I think there is still room for more attendees --- just ask and tell her Marcia sent you!
I am using a pattern designed by Linda Halpin. I am laying it out with a little different arrangement to make a table topper. Click Here for information about Linda and her quilt patterns and designs on her website.
She designed the pattern for the Wisconsin Shop Hop this year.
I also sell the pattern on my website. Click Here to order it. She designed an easy way to make circles! I love it! I am sure I will make a bright one soon!
I will share my completed quilt using my tea dyed fabrics sometime before November, but this is one of those quilts, I am working on 15 minutes at a time!
What do you do on Saturday mornings?
I tea dye!
I have not forgot about posting my new grand baby with his new quilts --- How about this next week?
And yes, I will post the Starry Sunflower Quilt Block - Free Quilt Block, sometime in September, when I get a few more blocks completed. It is really a cool quilt block. I love it!
Enjoy your day!
