Hand dyed

Another patchwork and quilted cushion. This one has the last scrap of a pumpkin orange fabric I hand dyed back in uni.... many years ago! I was mad for dyeing the fabric, mixing up the dye according to the formula in the recipe book, weighing out powder amounts. You never knew if it would come out the exact colour you chose but it was fun waiting and finding out. I made metres in various colours but only have tiny scraps left now. Not sure where it all went but I'm sure there's a lot of stuff made with that hand dyed fabric! I still love the orange, not too bright and a tiny bit patchy
