FMQ Friday - Dyeing Up a Storm

It's Friday and time to link up! Today I've been busy for several hours dyeing up yards and yards of fabric. Like the urge to knit, my urge to dye fabric comes and goes quickly so I figure I need jump on it when I can!

I've also started work on a new background for shooting videos. I've had to fiddle around with the size of the new logo, but finally got it printed just right. Now it just needs to be marked on this purple fabric, quilted like crazy, the logo painted, and hung behind my machine.

I think this will end up being a project for next week because tomorrow I'm heading up to Charlotte to check out the Intergallactic Bead Festival, and on Sunday hanging out at We're Sew Creative for the Sew South Reunion. I hope to get a lot further on my hexie stitching while on the road!

So what have you been up to this week! Quilted anything beautiful lately?

Simple rules for the FMQ Friday link up:

1. Link up with a post that features something about Free Motion Quilting (FMQ).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here, or you can just post the FMQF button in your sidebar.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other FMQF links. Share your love of free motion quilting and make this weekly link up a fun way to connect.

Let's go quilt,

  1. Oh, I so want to try dyeing. Your colors are beautiful, some of the most intense I've ever seen. The bead festival---LOVE beads, that sounds incredibly fun and inspiring. Have fun!

  2. Oh I love the shirt color. The logo page is coming up great!

  3. I love that colour orange!
    Need more of it in my closet, too!
