A Little More Snow Dyeing


Welcome to everyone who has arrived here as part of Blogathon Canada sponsored by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.  It has been so interesting to connect with so many creative Canadians!

I'm Lori and I been blogging for about 6 months now. I took my first quilting class 17 years ago, but for many years I only sewed clothes for my children.  Quilting has now become my main focus.  In June I took the big leap into longarm quilting when my Innova arrived, and September marked the official opening of Night Owl Quilting & Dye Works. I use this blog as a place to share my own projects and the work I do for my clients.  I hope you have a little time to look around and see what I've been up to.

You should also know that I have a little bit of an addiction to fabric dyeing!  Here is a little more of the snow dyeing I did with the season's first snowfall.  The colours turned out lighter than I was anticipating, but I still love the results.

And a few closeups to show the really cool texture that results from the snow dyeing process.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the Blogathon!


  1. Love your snow dyeing results I too love to dye fabric, and snow dyeing is so much fun. So glad for this Blogathon and getting to meet so many new Canadain bloggers.

  2. Hello fellow Manitoban! I love the snow dying you have done. Do you have a source for this or a link to the process? I would love to try it myself!

  3. Hello from Nova Scotia! Looks like fun. I have tried dying but not snow dying.

  4. Hello from another Nova Scotian , I have never tried dying but it is definitely something I want to try and snow dying looks like great fun .

  5. A fellow Alberta quilter named Cathy Tomm has done some snow dyeing - you would love her work- there is a link to her blog on the Alberta list of this very fun blogathon. You have created some beautiful fabrics with your snow dyes.
    I love your baby quilts- the fringe is a fun idea and thanks for the hint. I have one of those cool rulers so I will have to try it on a baby quilt.
