Scrunch Dyeing in a tray

My turn, I would like to share a piece I made in december. This is the dyeprocess in pictures:



 
I decided to use this piece for a small project. Ironed fusible web over the full piece, cut a line drawing of sun flowers out of the piece and added it to a sort of 'crazy patch' top, dyed with the same colours.




 
 
No rocketscience, not an artquilt, but a lot of fun to do!!

  6. Wow! We are finally getting some nice weather so I can go out and do some dyeing. I know the place that sells ice will be getting a boost in revenue from me soon!

  8. And just WHY is it not art? Sure looks like it qualifies to me......Gorgeous!
    I am new to fabric dyeing and have just recently used a piece in a similar fashion (but reverse applique) the way the colours move through out the piece is fabulous.

  10. Nice piece Nienke. I love seeing how you use your fabrics. Did you use an Exacto-knife to cut out your sunflowers. They turned out beautifully.

  12. Beautiful quilt. Between the colors and textures in the fabrics and your cut out layers, you've achieved some very nice interesting complex layers.

  18. This is a beautiful piece!

    Makes me wonder what the definition of an "art" quilt is. Is a quilt only art when you use certain techniques or when you use certain products or if it is abstract or if ....

    I wonder if you took a poll what people would define an art quilt as.
