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.
