I decided I wanted to dye my own fabric for the back of the busy Denver quilt.

I got out this great new book I got recently - 

Fabric Dyer's Dictionary: 900+ Colors, Specialty Techiniques, The Only Dyeing Book You'll Ever Need!

Great book, but I didn't read all of the important parts before I started so....

I thought I was using an awful lot of dye....

I was!  After I had the fabric in the bags with the dye solution, it looked a little darker than I wanted.  So, I went back and read the directions.  Oops.

The fabrics turned out beautiful, but they are not what I wanted.  

So, today, I actually read the instructions and then started again.   I will post the results tomorrow.
