Piece by piece!

One of my students surprised me today at our workshop with a quilt top that she has made from fabric that she dye and/or printed in previous workshops.  Marilyn Hines is in her 80's still hand pieces and sews her quilts and is becoming a real artist with clay paste resist technique.

Marilynn Hines created this lovely Log Cabin Quilt with a Courthouse Steps setting using fabrics that she created in past indigo workshops with me.  The border edging is natural dyed/eco printed fabric and she is going to rust and indigo a piece of fabric for the backing.

Marilyn also has started another quilt top using 10" squares of cotton fabric that she printed and dyed in last month's workshop.  She is really enjoying using the clay paste technique with indigo.
