Studio Colors

A very Roy G Biv set of fabrics.
I have several projects in the works at the moment. Quite colorful, I must say.
Work has already begun on the Indigo Challenge fabric for the October installment of the Searching for Roy G Biv Challenge. What a tough color. I pulled out some indigo ikats for a look.

I went online to see what Indigo looks like. Seems the spectrum color and what we think of as indigo dye are a bit different. This Challenge fabric may actually turn into a real challenge!

I'm also working on another set of  Peace Flags. An artists' trade is in the works. I'm quite excited, as the artist, Mary Jane Dodd, the initiator of the Flags for Peace Project, creates amazing, thoughtful works of jewelry...or really small sculptures to wear (in my opinion).

Other projects include samples for the book proposal...a set of place mats using my kitchen fabrics and black and white and black and tan fat quarters for my gallery, Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery. The next show at the Gallery is called, Black and White. This is the first time I will be entering some of my printed fabrics. I'm curious to see how the fabrics will sell. I'm planning to submit three packages of fabric with four fat quarters each  and am trying to figure out pricing. Ersi will be happy to know that the black and tan fabrics will be dyed in coffee before being printed.

It seems that I have lost a couple of your comments. Rather than being sent to my gmail account, they have been hiding out in some secret corner of my blog. So I am sorry if you haven't seen your comment posted and will try to be more diligent about checking. One comment in particular I was sorry to miss from Susan who posted a great selection of blues at her blog:

Also, just a reminder that I have a gift offer celebrating my 200th post. Be sure to check it out!


  1. Fascinating! Those indigo ikats are gorgeous and I really want to see those black and tan fabrics dyed with coffee. Looking forward to your work with indigo too!

    1. Just rinsing out the coffee fabrics...
      The indigo Challenge fabric is tricky. Just did a second set of backgrnd colors as the first seemed too blue. Have to get it done this wk as I'm off to San Francisco on Sat. Can't wait!
