Then, I put the blocks and sashing and cornerstones up on the design wall. I need to make sure I get the pattern and colors going the right direction.
Then I take them down, a row at a time, sew the row together, then put it back up on the wall.
|All the little blocks, stacked up and ready to go..|
First row sewn together
|Two rows sewn together, keeping them in order so I don't mess up.|
|The Blocks - sewn together.|
|Step One - sewing strips together.|
|Step Two -Join two of the strips right-sides-together and then cut them cross-ways.|
|Step Three - Chain those together.|
|Step Four - Iron open and voila!|
|Mixing the different dye colors up first.|
|Smaller pieces of fabric are in plastic bags.|
|First day, two purples and gold.|
|Plastic bags of fabric, dyeing overnight in the sink.|
|And a big chunk of fabric in a bucket.|
|The colors are not right on here, you'll have to come see them in person.|
