Tie-dye quilt top

I finished the tie dye quilt top ….it is about 60″ square.

I was not sure if I wanted to add a border and make it bed sized, but once I hung it up to look at it I decided It was done.  This should get the oddball out of my system long enough to finish up hand quilting the whole cloth quilt I have been working on.   I do have backing fabric, batting and hand quilting thread (12 weight for big stitch quilting) for the tie-dye quilt so I might not be able to resist working on it as well……but I want to get the whole cloth finished!

Happy Quilting

    Tim, what size and brand needle do you use for big stitch quilting? The embroidery needles I’ve found feel like small posts.

    Wow! That’s really different from what you usually do. The gray makes an excellent framework for the bright explosion of color behind it. I think we all probably have some quilting extremes and not being afraid to work on both probably helps bring out the best in us all. Thanks for sharing!

    I love your quilt. The colors are great. I’ve never seen a tye dye quilt before. The framing is perfect. Thanks for sharing! I am excited to see it quilted. I love all your quilts. You do great work. Teddy looked cute with the tye dye fabric the other day. The whole cloth quilt is looking gorgeous congratulations.

  12. […] His post on the Tie Dye quilt he made gave me the idea for what I’m doing. I won’t do it as creatively as he did but I’ll make my own thing out of it. I also have two more pieces of 1-yard that Jen did. I might let her get a picture of the tie dye before I cut it all up. Maybe. […]
