Colour choices and dyeing
Going back to my source picture I cut out small squares of different colours which I then tried to reproduce using water colours. This was the preparation for dyeing fabrics for the Blue John quilt.
Using tray dyeing and procion dyes from Art Van Go on polycotton I created some wonderfully textured fabrics.
This is the grey, blue and purple palette, and the warmer yellow, orange and browns
I had in mind terrazzo floor tiles and marble for this quilt so didn't want uniform colours
More design ideas using the 6 piece block. Not quite what I am looking for yet.
