I am very lucky to live on a hilltop overlooking a prairie, beyond which is Mt Spokane. One of the things I enjoy the most is the 180 degree view and the feeling of expanse one gets from this vantage point. It is a constant reminder of how small we are and how exposed we can be to all the elements. We see a lot of different weather moving through and during certain times of the year we are treated to amazing displays of color.
These photographs taken from the hilltop are my inspiration for this collection of fabrics. Gorgeous shades of orange mixed with blues. I decided to create a new fabric bundle of four different fabrics using this combination.
The fabrics are silk charmeuse, silk rayon velvet, silk matka and wool. I started with orange and then added various proportions of blue at different stages of the dye process. I kept no formulas and made no notes, I just played. They are spontaneous and therefore not exactly repeatable. They are available through Sue in 1/16th yard bundles in limited numbers. I dyed just three yards of each.
I am hoping to create a different bundle each month using a photograph or two for inspiration and each month tell a unique color story.
