some quiltlets

 This little nosegay block was given to members of our guild by Diane Shink, an AQS appraiser and collector extraordinaire of old blocks, star quilts and vintage aprons.  She asked us to produce a 15" block and we were allowed to do whatever we wanted with this.  Many chose to deconstruct it, but I thought that I would give it a new look and leave it as what it was - a nosegay of flowers.  
And here it is.                                                                             

Below is a piece made with a picture that I took of a small lake on a golf course, early on a November morning.  It was done as a challenge for our 12bythedozen blog.  Reflections was the theme.  The size is 12"x12".

absolutely stunning and I loved your snow dyes. I recently dyed some frozen fabric but you can only use one dye for it. Not as spectacular as snow dyeing but I found the process interesting. Ann

Thanks Ann. Why can you only use one dye on frozen fabric?
