Quilting Arts

The latest issue of Quilting Arts arrived this morning. I know I always say it, but this is a super issue. Lots of ideas for colouring fabric including transfer dyes and ice dyeing. I tried snow dyeing and got some terrific results, but it is a bit of a pain waiting for a white winter; this lets you use a similar technique all through the year. There is also stencilling, monoprinting and finger painting, stamping and more on resists (tapioca this time!).

I'm getting on OK with my City and Guilds. I've nearly finished the history project, my design project is done and all I need to do now is finish my final piece. It is evolving, and hopefully I'll be able to get on with that in the next couple of days.
