Fabric Dyeing

I feel much better today. I am checking out a new liberated quilting style as well as looking for tips and tricks to make more traditional stuff.

A couple of weeks ago I took my first quilt class. Actually, it was a fabric dyeing class at the library. We painted on bleached muslin using acrylic paint mixed with extender. I was not sure what to expect going into the class. Having never heard of this technique I was at a loss as to what to paint. Here is what I came up with.

I am not much of an artist so my fabric looks child like. however, I must say some ladies at this class painted on the fabric like Monet and Van Goh. I guess with practice anything is possible. I will probably re visit this technique at a later point when I have a specific project in mind.
