Fabric Auditions

I dyed some fabric after work today; my goal was to get a good yellow for the border of the Desert Marigold quilt, and a good fuschia for the penstemon quilt.

The penstemon fabric turned out better; this is what I think of as a good audition. The fabric on the left with the gray turned out very cool:

The yellow turned out….not so cool:

I was trying for a pale-ish yellow, but it got too pale; if I have time, I’ll over dye these fabrics tomorrow. I used lemon yellow, but may use a gold yellow for the next go around.

I love working and making art in the Sonoran Desert; yes, it's hot in the summer, but there is a lot of space and the winters are lovely.
