Lorikeet

I found some fabrics in my stash for the new Twelve by Twelve colour scheme. It is "lorikeet" and it was chosen by Brenda.
Except for the red, the pieces were not big enough for experimenting, so I decided to have a little dyeing session yesterday...
I usually don't like green very much, but I'm rather pleased with those ones. I also dyed a piece in bright yellow, but forgot to photograph it.
Here's a photo of the towel I used to mop the spills...

I now have enough fabric to start playing but I must admit I'm not very much inspired by these colours at the moment. I wrote down a few ideas but nothing really exciting... Maybe I need a little break, or maybe I have other things on my mind...
Tomorrow is our 30th wedding anniversary. I can't believe time is passing so fast.

In the meantime, I took some new pictures of my turquoise quilt before parting with it.

I cannot get the right colour yet...

The new 12 x 12 colour scheme looks very challenging! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Your fabrics look so wonderful in the sudsy water. Whenever I dye I always like the fabrics best when they are wet.

Happy 30th wedding anniversary!!
The colors of fabric look fantastic to me!

Oh dear, you are putting me to shame. I'd better go and pull the lorikeet fabrics and start thinking about a plan!

I love the details of the finished turquoise quilt. Wonderful stitching detail.

Congratulations on your 30th Wedding Anniversary!


Turquoise is such a difficult colour to get on the computer.
