Continuing to Make Slow Progress...

As I've been working on my Rust quilt, I'm finding just how much of a challenge it is to machine quilt rust dyed fabric.

I'm making slow progress, but I thought I'd show you a couple of areas that are now done.  I'm really happy with the look I'm achieving, but I can't tell you how many times I've had to rethread the machine because the rust is literally shredding my thread as I sew.


Fortunately I am now moving into some areas which are going to have hand stitching so I'll have a break from the machine work, at least for a while.












I was considering showing you more, but Arbour thinks I should make you wait until it's done...

  2. Rust dyed fabric is new to me but what I see I like, and it looks like a charming piece of art. Arbour is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Kliaksa. And yes, Arbour is a pretty little cat. She's tiny...only 7.5 lbs

  4. I've never tried to do rust dying but I've always loved it. Can't wait to see the full piece...I just love blue & brown combinations and the sneak peak tells me it's going to be wonderful.

    1. Thanks Leah. I've slowed down now that I'm doing hand stitching, but I'm happy with how it's going.
