Rail Fence Runner and Some Snow Dyeing

Trina sent this lovely runner.   The inner border is a flange, so to keep it free we decided on a separate border with a free hand "swirly tails" allover in the center.  A denim blue Magnifico thread and Quilters Dream Blend Batting were used.

Since we got some fresh snow yesterday I decided it was time to do some snow dyeing again.  I am hoping to create the background for an art quilt to fit the theme "Prairie Sounds".  Pieces have to be long and narrow.  I am doing two, hoping that one will be perfect, but in reality I am expecting to do some piecing to get the effect I am looking for. The G&S Dyes I used were: Cotton Black, Hot Pink, Royal Blue, Bright Yellow, Navy.

Here is my process in pictures.

 Only time will tell the results of this experiment!  


  1. Looks pretty interesting. I'll have to come back to see the end results!

  2. Snow dying looks so intriguing - I'm going to have to try that some day when I have my backlog of work tamed.

  3. Too bad where I live (Brazil) does not snow ..
    It's amazing what you do with the snow!
