A finish just in time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I also want to express concern and hope that all my east coast friends are doing OK after the crazy storm, Sandy.
I want to thank Amy over at Amy's Creative Side for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I have found some great ideas and wonderful works of art. I am inspired!

Update....I made the finalist list for the Rainbow Quilt category:

Down the Dyeing Path
There's a whole lot of firsts for me on this quilt. The inspiration for the quilt came from a fabric dyeing class at my local quilt shop. The class was Hands on Hand Dyes and I did the Full Spectrum Playgrounds Kit. I had never dyed fabric before and loved doing it. I had a little dye left over after the class and brought it home and did a little more dyeing of my own on some stashed black and white fabric. The white in the fabric picked up the dye.

The 6 inch blocks are London Stairs. I found the pattern at Quilt-Pro Block of the Day. They send me a pattern in my email every day. I used one of the spectrum fabrics in each block. When I started making blocks I knew I wanted to make a color wheel quilt with every one of the hand dyed fabrics.

And that is my journey "Down the Dyeing Path". I'm going to hang this in my Sewing Room for color wheel inspiration. I use the color wheel at work everyday and am just fascinated by it as a tool for so many things.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.
