What materials did you use? I used all the bits and pieces of cotton fabric I had batiked

What are you most proud of? This is a lot more color than I would normally use but since Malka had them on our supply list I wanted to try them all. The design probably would have been more effective with fewer colors (and a lot less orange) but I used what I had. I think it came out bright and cheerful.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It was great fun experimenting with different tools and colors, discharging and overdyeing. Just make sure you have plenty of fabric when you start because it's so much fun you won't want to stop.

Beautiful! It's such a happy quilt; your use of the orange and aqua with the soft grey turned out so well. Makes me want to do one like it.

You should! It's so pretty on the arm of the sofa. Really brightens the room
