I began with a piece of plastic construction fence, to block of squares on a pale yellow piece of fabric. Then orange dye and more soy wax resist. The hot pink and magenta was last, brushed on with a foam brush in squarish shapes. This one really glows when up to the light. I am trying to think of how to preserve that effect, when I make something out of it.

Resist Dyeing - Day 3
Finally, a few moments to get on the computer. With school starting up, it has been a very busy week. I drive school bus, which gives me a lot of time in my week to quilt, as I drive a split shift, morning and afternoon. Four hours off, in the middle of the day is a wonderful luxury, but makes for a LONG day. Of coarse the kids were so excited, in all their new clothes and shoes with fluorescent shoelaces. I have a set of kindergarten twin girls this year, so cute!! And then nature hit us with a 100 degree day on Friday, whew! HOT!! The Pacific North West is not really used to that weather. So getting an extra day to dye fabric last week was a wonderful opportunity to play, before going back to work.
