Rusty





Here are some lovely fabrics I got in the post today - from the rusted fabric exchange with my surface embellishment group. The variety is remarkable and the pieces are lovely. Not sure how I will use them yet, but I certainly will use them!


And here are two recent finishes - I have done the binding on both of these piecs now - the Jacob's Ladder is a 12" block and the basket is about 22" square, I think. Both are now finished and ready to go off to new homes - not sure where the basket is going yet, as it happens, but we'll get there before long. If you'd like a chance to own it, check out my post about my blogversary giveaway!

I haven't tried rust dyeing (yet) but I love the results. That's a nice collection of fabric!

I love rusted fabric but have no idea what to do with it. This is a lovely collection. I especially like the ones with splotches of blue. How did they do that?
