Tie Dying Quilt Backs

Totally dyed this thanksgiving morning…after making the dressing and readying the bird I set to dying 4 big white sheets to use for quilt backings.  Scarlet and Teal for boy quilts, and hot pink and purple for girl quilts.  Of course when purchasing the sheets I must not have been paying attention since one of the sheets turned out to be a fitted sheet…UGH!

Shamus was nice enough to nap out of the way while I tied up the sheets using ribbon. 11-25-10

Teal

and hot pink I dyed on the stove top in the stock pot,

scarlet

and purple in the sinks…a little too much detergent added to the purple.  11-25-10

I love the brightness of the color right out of the dye bath! 11-25-10

All done and ready to be chopped up for baby lovies! 11-25-10

Sewin like a total freak!

quilt label

As I sit here munching cherries for lunch I contemplate yet another blog!

In this one I want to share the charities I sew for…not to blow my own horn but to say…HEY…if I can do it…anyone can!  Helping isn’t only a nice thing to do it’s lovely for the Karma! 

care instructions

These are some of the labels I use (or hope to very soon) on the lovies, quilts, receiving blankets and huggables I make and send to preemie babies, newborns at risk, heart babies and Project Linus greater Twin Cities.
