Fabric Dyeing

I did a bit of fabric dyeing earlier this year.  After taking a low water immersion dyeing class last fall, I inherited some fabric dye powder from a couple of friends.  Ever the engineer, I calculated some dye lots on spreadsheets, and set out to dye the PFD fabric that I had in the closet.  I have to say that the dying process is pretty quick and pretty interesting.  But, the rinsing out and washing is a painful long process.  

I didn't have any goal in mind as far as a quilt goes, but just wanted to use up the dye and fabric on hand.  Here are some of my results:

I mixed some colors and in other cases I diluted the dyes to get a range of one color.

Anyway, I hope you have new and exciting experiences too.
