What materials did you use? 100% cotton PFD fabric

What are you most proud of? That I tried the over dye and it worked! I had used hose clamps on the yellow and, of course, that didn't work. I overdyed with meadow bark after batiking with various items - binder clip, cocktail strainer, heart and star magnets. This resulted in a pleasant green. I also overdyed the darker orange piece with meadow bark. I love it. The strong orange and meadow bark gave me a nice blueish-brown.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun. Cover up. Try different manipulations. It's all good.

I tried an Elmer's Glue stick as a resist. Didn't work very well.

Sorry, The sun yellow and meadow bark gave me the nice green. The strong orange and meadowbark is a nice bluish/brown.

Thank you. I've started using the fabrics in a modern mystery quilt. So I'll just have to make more.
