Look What I Won!!


Look what I got in the mail yesterday! Dora from Dora Quilts had a giveaway and I won! I'm still shocked but quite happy about it! Dora hand dyed these fabrics using Procion MX dyes from Dharma Trading. I've received the catalog from Dharma Trading and always hoped to hand dye some of my own fabrics. However, I never got to it. I started looking into the process and became somewhat overwhelmed! I'm so excited that I won these fabrics. The colors are just beautiful.


Here is another look at these beauties. The colors have wonderful depth to them. I'm not sure these pictures do them justice. Suffice it to say, I love them and am so appreciative of the work put into them.

I'll be on the lookout for a project that really showcases these lovely colors. I'm not sure if applique or pieced blocks would work better. I'll have to find the courage to cut into these beauties so I have to find the best project! Thank you so much, Dora! I really love them!
