More shibori!

Last weekend was Jayne Larson’s shibori workshop at Quilters’ Studio in Newbury Park.  Twelve of us stitched, tied, and rubber-banded our way to beautiful fabric designs.  I love shibori because I love to dye fabric.  And when you can dye fabric and be surprised at the designs left behind by the resisted areas, it’s even better.  Each shibori session usually results in at least one piece that stands out from the others.  This is mine.  The fabric used was Radiance pfd fabric which is 1/2 silk and 1/2 cotton.  The center piece is 11″ x 16″ and was stitched using four different stitches in concentric circles.  The long strips are my favorite, having been wrapped around a hair roller secured with rubber bands!
