Using some shibori fabric

I was finding it hard to use some of the shibori fabric I've made, and finally came up with a design that I think shows it off. This is a simple piece with 2 1/2 leaves on it, measuring about 36" wide and 42" long, quilted with a simple design of lines on the green background.

The green fabric is sateen that I dyed using some avacado colored dye. It has a nap to it, and I deliberately placed some of it going one way and some the other, giving the color difference shown.

I'm still quilting some of the individual lines on the leaves using both brown and pink thread. Good way to spend the day today, inside in the AC instead of out in my 120+ degree garage doing monoprinting or dyeing.


  1. Not only do I LIKE but I love those colors. Yum Yum

  2. Laura,
    This is a perfect use of those luscious Shibori dyed pieces!

  3. Hi Laura,

  4. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this piece! Wow, you've done a great job with your shibori fabric.
