Black And White Shibori – Even More Compositions


I am continuing experimenting with different arrangements of some of the black and white I dyed recently.


I like this one better rotated 45 degrees. A famous quilter once told me if something doesn’t work, put it on point!


I’m liking this one you saw on a previous post better with the addition of the focus square.


And now the focus square on the larger “tree” piece.

I love being able to use my digital camera and SEE what different compositions are going to look like without cutting into my fabrics.

Whether I use any of these or not, it is good to see the possibilities.

All of these shibori pieces were dyed on wet fabric. This allows me to get very distinct blacks and whites.

You achieve a very good black with your dye!

I love your shibori! I have never had much luck with the technique but you have inspired to give it a try again.

So many possibilities. Each one interesting. Great to have so many choices.

ditto and ditto. Can't decide which one I like the best. that's a great dilemma to be in.
