    I’d love to work with hand dyes. So far, i havent as i havent known a resource for them or really how to use them. This book and the fabrics used are so inspiring it makes me want to use these fabrics and these designs. That combined with her promise to give ideas on creating your own combinations make it just too appealing!

    I so enjoy hand dying my own fabrics. I’ve yet to use them in a quilt, but I’m looking forward to the day I do. I also have a stash of batiks. I’ve used a few, but haven’t found the right pattern to really inspire me to use them. I’m so excited about these patterns, this concept.

    I love using Batiks, I’ve made a blue quilt using them with colors that go from Dk blue to beige. I also have a tube quilt made with batiks. I love this book, love the use of color, that really stands out. Never used hand dyed fabric, but do have some. I could use them in creating a quilt from this book. Thanks for the chance.

    I love both. But I do dye some of my own colors, never quite knowing what I will get. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I finished my first quilt made with batiks this past January and I loved it. The colors of the batiks really make the quilt shine.

    I enjoy working with both batiks and hand-dyed fabrics, especially fabrics that have been dyed with natural dyes.

    Batiks are my favorite fabrics to work with. They are reversible and have a high thread count so they are quality fabrics. I have not sewn with hand dyed fabric.

    I saw this book at IQF and I love it!

    I love working with batik fabrics. The colors are so saturated, and I love the density of the high thread count.

    I have used batiks in only one project so far, but the projects and methods in this book would inspire me to use more of them- looks like fun!

    I’ve enjoyed working with batiks. I haven’t used hand dyed fabrics yet. I’ve looked at some websites that talk about dying your own fabric.

    I love working with Batiks, including for hand appliqué .
    Although I have hand dyed fabrics in a class I have yet to work with them. I can’t bear to cut them up!
