Making My Own Sunshine With My Shibori Fabrics

image

Since Mother Nature didn’t have enough sunshine for our area today I thought I’d try and make my own.

I started with these fabrics.

Knowing how black sets off anything I added black borders.

Green is Mother Nature’s neutral so I thought I’d try it. It also is a variation of one of the colors I’ve already used.

Using both green and black is more interesting.

I am enjoying playing with the fabrics I have dyed and some of the compositions have possibilities.

Time will tell!

I love the sunshine fabric. I've resisted dying my own (quilting already has enough steps), but seeing your results, I'm being tempted.

If I were making it, I'd put a very narrow (1/8 of 1/4 inch) deep rich dark between the sun and the green.
