Shibori Fabric Design Experiments

When working with these fabrics everything is a new experience. Each fabric is different.

This is the beginning of one trial with some of the fabrics.

I have used fabrics from quite a few different years dyeing activities that I am trying out.

I can see possibilities with these. When I photograph arrangements and look at them on the computer much becomes apparent that wasn’t obvious when I look at the design on the wall.

This is a little better than the last view. I don’t think I’ll be actually creating a quilt with it though.

Working this way gives me other ideas and tomorrow is another day, another composition with some of these fabrics and some others.

Oooh, ahhhh! Love the shibori pieces. I'm intrigued by the round image, which I assume was some sort of clamped object? I would love to see that off-center, maybe in one of the lower quadrants. Very fun, Kay!

Fantastic, intricate, I love it.
I wouldn't have thought of a bagel or donut, but now that I have, maybe you should move it away from the center....

I love your fabrics. The linear combination with the color- blows me away.
