Hello Everyone,

I am sure that most of you are familiar with Etsy? Well, this year I had been looking for some great hand dyed fabrics and there are tons of people out there on Etsy that sell them. I have purchased from three of them and everything that I have received I have absolutely loved. Very high quality and these ladies take pride in their work.

So one of these individuals, Chris, not only has an Etsy Shop, but a blog called Dye Candy that I follow too. She carries wonderful suede look hand dyed fabrics. I am very happy with mine. Recently she sent me a package, just for me and to my surprise.

It was a box loaded with the selvages of her hand dyed fabrics!!

You cannot believe how delighted I was to receive them. The colors are just gorgeous! Kind of confetti like.

I am loving looking at them so much, the color is just wonderful. A friend of mind suggested to just put them in a glass jar for decoration and so that I can oooh and aaah any time.

But I think that I would like to do something quilty like with them. This is where you all come in... I would love any suggestions that you might have. I am perfectly willing to try a new technique too. So go ahead leave me a comment with your thoughts and suggestions. I would so appreciate any.

Then go over and say hi to my friend Chris and take a look at all her Dye Candy!!

For some more dyed fabric inspiration, check out my other friends, Vicki and Karen. They also have wonderful hand dyed fabrics that would be a perfect addition to any stash!

Of note, I just added a ton of die cut 1930s Aunt Grace to my Etsy Shop... go take a peek.

Next time watch for my monthly newsletter and Episode 7 of my podcast!!

Until Next Time...
