Cyanotypes and ice dyed fabric

It's National Old Time Fiddle Festival here in Weiser this week, so I've put in some volunteer time listening to the music. I work in the judging area checking the tabulation of the scores, so I get to hear the music but not see the contestants. Earlier in the week the very small fry were the contestants and today it was Seniors. So I've heard quite a range of skills and music.

I've pulled out some cyanotype leaves I did last fall and put them together with the ice dyed fabric I did a few weeks ago.

Then decided it needed an ice dyed backing fabric.

Now I have to decide how to quilt it.

2019 Daily Stitching #2, days 76-82
Getting closer to the end

This week it was stars, bars and z's all done with running stitch.

2019 Weekly Leaf, week #25
Red Solar fast on white cotton sateen, a bit of green Inktense blocks used on the leaves and a great red and green variegated pearl cotton from Valdani.

I'll be linking up with "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"


  1. I consider your blog my ‘Friday Feast’…..always such eye-candy and inspirations!

  2. You have brought cyanotypes to another level on that ice dyed fabric. It is wonderful. Your red pie continues to amaze me.

  3. Loving your cyanotype leaves on the ice dyed backing fabric. The solar red on the white fabric leaves are stunning. The green thread for the embroidery is the perfect colour.

  4. Such beautiful ice dyed fabrics... yum!
    Thanks for linking up!

  5. The cyanotype fabrics contrast really well with the ice-dyed fabrics. Your stitching is beautiful as always!
