I don't know if you are familiar with Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber, but she is possibly the best fabric dyer that I know. In addition to her blog - that I subscribe to, and I suggest you do also - Vicki has a lovely Etsy shop where she sells her hand dyed fabric.
But I get ahead of myself, let's look at my prize!
There was also a 2 1/2 yard package of Mistyfuse in black. It is the perfect fusible for dark fabrics. There are twelve fat eighths of fabric here and the Mistyfuse. But there are also some fun little "add ins" Somehow I missed photographing the pad of sticky notes that came in the package. But you can see Vicki's card, a bookmark AND this fun little door hanger. On one side it says "Happily Fusing, Come join me." There other side has "Do not disturb! Goddess inside...fusing!" For those of you who may not know, Mistyfuse makes a Goddess sheet for fusing as the fusible is not backed with paper. I love the little play on words.
I have bought fabric from Vicki previously and it is a delight to work with. It doesn't bleed when you wash it. The fabric is a good quality cotton that is perfect for quilt piecing, applique or fusible applique.
There are many choices in Vicki's Etsy shop - and I am "borrowing" some pictures to show you.
This one, Appalachian Sunset, is one I have in my stash.
Etsy. In case I whetted your appetite........
Do be aware that even Etsy shop owner's deserve a vacation break. Here is the current announcement on Vicki's Shop.
You may remember my "Trip to the Beach" mini quilt.
The background is Vicki's Anatola gradient.
Now, I must say that Vicki did not ask or suggest that I say anything about her fabrics, her shop or even the prize. However, when I am happy with a product or a shop, I believe in telling you all about it. So if you are looking for some lovely hand dyed fabrics, take my advice and shop here first - and last.
