Blue Grapes

Hand Dye Painted Fabric 8" square
Companion Fabric
How fun is that companion fabric. Deciding how many of each coloured dots to paint was interesting as I wanted the overall fabric to look right and also considered what it would look like cut into pieces. Do you think solid coloured fabrics would be a good choice to sew with this companion fabric?
The grapes and leaves were painted in harmonious greens and blues with a small amount of the orange to add zing.

Love these fabrics, Eileen, and yes, I think solids would be a great match!

Laura Leeder said...

Yes! I absolutely think solids in any of the colors of these two pieces would be wonderful. A great idea!

This is beautiful! Have you started sewing with it yet? I can't believe you can do this with dyes!

I haven't sewn the blue grapes but I do have it packaged ready for sale for some other quilter to sew into their work. As I paint so much, I only have time to sew a few of my dye painted fabrics.
