Shibori and Beyond

Shibori - there are traditional ways to

dye and manipulate the fabric.  Some

patterns are more complex than others.

Traditionally, Indigo dyes are used more

often than not.

What I enjoy doing is going beyond the traditional

and experiment with bold bright colors. 

Playing with a technique and reinterpreting

the design; giving it a whole new look.


I played around with this one - is it a Red moon

or a Blooming Flower Burst?  

There are so many possibilities!

 Change the colors and it becomes a Sunburst.

I discovered this design by just manipulating

the fabric in different positions. 

The possibilities are endless and surprising!

 The smaller pieces that I do I'm putting them in

greeting cards. The fabric can be removed and used

or just left the way it is in the card to be displayed.

All these are available in my Etsy shop.

Happy Quilting!
