Variety of Techniques - Mystery Technique - Week 7

Ok.....just when I think life is running smoothly....it goes off the rails!  Then I have the sinking feeling that "WAIT!  What if these ARE the rails!!"  Scary thought.

Anyway, off the rails or on, life went wildly whirling yesterday and have caused a delay in the arrival of this week's mystery technique.

So, to make it short and sweet...

Here it is


This turned out to be one of my favorite methods to make "water" fabric! Can you see it?

Usual rules apply. Enter your guesses in the comment section below. The winner will be drawn from all correct guesses. If no correct guesses....the winner will be drawn from all those who entered. And don't forget...all those who enter these mystery contests will be intered in a drawing for our new e-book at the end of February!

See you here Monday with the reveal of the technique and the announcement of the winner. Have an amazing weekend you guys!!

Off and running now....trying to catch that off the rails train!!  Or......not.........

  1. I think it was done with strips of masking tape placed on the fabric (or possibly onto the silk screen) and over 'painted' with thickened blue dye.

  2. Previously dyed fabric was wrapped around a pole, large can, etc, scrunched and tied. Paint/dye was applied to the ridges.

  3. pole or similar wrapping, pushed down and then ever so gently the high points are coloured using a foam brush or foam wedge.

  8. Oh, oh, oh.....I know this one! Shibori - wrapped blue cloth around a PVC pipe using string, scrunch it up, and use a discharge medium to take out the color! I took this class at QuiltCon!

  9. Shibori dyeing on already dyed fabric

  10. I'm thinking it might be the shibori technique on coloured fabric but using a fabric marker instead of paint, as the lines seem a little too crisp for paint, unless it was very thick.

  11. wrapped on pole or can with ridges lightly dyed.

  12. Definitely arashi shibori; fabric put onto a pole, tied with string (sometimes) and then scrunched up.

  13. It looks like arashi shibori on a pretinted fabric. I've gotten similar results by twisting the fabring lengthwise on itself, knotted it, then applied the dye with a brush.

  14. Well,I have a different idea. I think it was stitched with a twin needle and then color was applied to the raised edges you get with a twin needle.

  17. Ok I wrote a comment previously from my iPhone but it didn't post. I'll have to see what needs to be adjusted!

    In the meantime!! Thanks for all the wonderful guesses!! I'll be here on Monday to share the technique and announce the winner!!

    Hope all of you are having a very creative weekend. It feels like spring here. Relatively warm here on the tundra. Almost 50F!!
