Happy New Year! I made an indigo dyepot!
But wait I am getting a bit ahead of myself. I finished this quilt. Seriously, I finished it. It is finished. done. It’s true. Even the binding.
and now about the indigoI used one of those big Homer pots from Home depot and I used the pre-reduced indigo from pro chem in Fall River MA.
Let me tell you – It is about as messy as you might think. I tied up this piece of white kona cotton and submerged it for about 2 and a half minutes.wowas soon as I wash it out I will post pics.
See you tomorrow! Happy January!
The quilt turned out great! I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of the indigo vat.
Thank you! I’m just a beginner with the indigo- but I can see how this can turn into an everyday habit!
Indigo, my absolute favourite colour. Can’t wait to see it, and that quilt is gorgeous! 😀
Thank you and thanks so much for following!
The quilt is fantastic!!! And I love indigo. Not sure why but have always felt like I had something very deep and profound to say to the world as a color….does that make any sense? Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing the unveiling!
Thanks Penny! It is a gorgeous color isn’t it? I love having the vat around. I can just dip in whenever I want!
Peter’s quilt is just beautiful. Will we see a new design from him in the future?
Yes! and thank you so much. Peter is working on a new one.
