Here's a rhetorical question for you: Did you ever have a piece of fabric that you just couldn't cut?

The real question for me is: Who created this beautiful piece of cotton shibori that I could not gather the courage to cut?

As many of you know, I'm not often very happy with the fabric that I dye and only somewhat happy with my discharging efforts. This is exactly why I support others who are successful. I buy their work.

This shibori was purchased from someone...probably within the last year (dating it by the depth at which I found it in my stash). Connie Rose? I don't know...I think I bought greens from her. Sunny Bunny? No, I think I bought warm colored arashi shibori from her. Anybody gotta suggestion?

I have to get better organized (want to enter a poll on how many years THAT'S been on my New Year's Resolution list?). I'm going to try to remember to write in the selvedge the name of the source in the future. I'd love to be able to thank them again, and give them credit, when I have used their work.

I can say that the binding was fabric that I discharged. :^) At least I remember THAT.


  1. Yeah, I see why you couldn't cut into it. Very lovely results. The stitching really enhances the fabric.
    best, nadia

  2. Very cool fabric -- no matter WHO created it, you did a great job turning it into an art quilt.


  3. Yes, It is a beautiful piece and I am glad you left it whole!

  4. Great fabric and I like what you did with it! It wasn't from me!

  5. The fabric looks like it has tiny electrical currents zapping around!Great way to complete it!
