Magazine Giveaway and Fabric dyeing

Hi friends!

What are you up to today?

Today I am going to ice dye some fabric. Or maybe snow dye. We have a bunch of snow!

Ice Dyeing


 My local quilt guild is having demo night this month as our program. I thought it would be fun to demo something a little different so I am doing ice dyeing. I haven’t dyed fabric in a while- since my friend Marcia moved away. She and I had done a lot of dyeing together.

So I am going to do a little practice session, try a few different folding techniques and see what happens!

I recently posted that I was guest blogging over at McCall’s Quilting magazine. And the quilt I was blogging about was this one called Ring Around the Toesies.

Bed Scarf


It is a bed scarf – perfect for when you want to add a pop of color to your bed but don’t have time to make a whole quilt! It was a lot of fun to make- and quicker too!


It is in the Feb/March 2017 issue of  McCall’s Quick Quilts. There are a lot of fun projects in this issue. Would you like a chance to win a copy?

Just leave a comment below for a chance to win. You have until Monday night Jan 9th at 9 PM (my time).

Giveaway is now closed.

Off to the dollar store for last minute supplies and then to dye some fabric!

happy quilting,

  6. I’m a bit intimidated with using powdered dyes. But I love the look. Have been playing with Rit and Dye-It and getting some good results. But ice and snow dying are very appealing!

  7. Beautiful colors. I have never tried the ice dying before. Looks like you will have some fun results. Looking forward to seeing how the guild does.

  10. Can’t wait to read more about the ice dyeing. I was looking at videos this week and suggested to my grandson that we need to try this technique. We’ve been dyeing T-shirts for 12-14 years in one form or another and haven’t tried this.
