Sponge painting:

Someone told me this is called ‘hillbilly shibori’:

Scrunching plus salt:

As always, its a blast!

Reina’s quilt

This is my first real post on my blog, I guess I’ll see if it works! Reina is my nephew Schuyler’s baby girl, born on June 18th, 2007. Her mother, Amy, is of Japanese descent, so I tried to make a quilt with somewhat of an Oriental look, without actually using any Japanese fabrics. The circles are made from my own hand-painted fabric, out of drapery lining fabric. I am really liking the look this fabric creates, especially for landscapes.
