"I" is for Indigo Dyeing, because that's what I did over the past week instead of working on my MQG Challenge Quilt!
I've written a number of blog entries over the last several days in which I've addressed the dyeing process and some of its challenges. I will continue with the more detailed commentary in future posts, but for today, I'm just going to do some show-and-tell of the shibori pieces I dyed last Wednesday. Here they are:
Itajime (clamp resist):
Nui shibori (stitched shibori):
Tesuji (a particular kind of pole-wrapping technique):
Which is your favorite? Mine is the last of the itajime pieces, which to me looks like a set of ethereal, slightly abstract windows.
Linking to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and the Needle and Thread Network; more indigo shibori news coming soon!
