Did you see what Karen Marchetti did with her Mini Mandalas? She's willing to share how she designed her award winning quilt, "Andromeda's Crossing"! My job is to help you dye the fabric you will need. All of it, even the binding! In this all day workshop, each student will select a palette of three (3) colors of dye to work with for the whole day. From these three colors, you will dye several 22" x 22" ice dyed mandalas, six coordinating tone on tone solids, a 44" x 44" quilt back, a 44" x 44" quilt face, and a half yard of binding! From this coordinating collection of your own hand dyed fabric, you have everything you need to make your mandala quilt! You will have lots of fabric choices and options, so no excuses.....Karen is going to teach you to Cut The Fabric!

Whether you are looking to make your next whole cloth project shine, need a special quilt back, or would like to offer them to your customers as add on sales, wide width custom hand dyed fabric is in high demand. We will spend the first part of class discussing and demonstrating back to back ideas for fast and easy custom quilt backs. Our topics will include tone on tone texture, swirls and spirals, pleated patterns and radiant designs, and the eternal question, to ice, or not to ice?!? During the workshop portion of class, we will each have a chance to practice dyeing one of the wide width techniques, and learn from your fellow classmates as they dye theirs.
