Art Quilt group

We recently formed a small Art Quilt Group (with 2 other quilters) and now meet once a month to play with all the art quilt stuff that we have all been buying over the years.    We all pulled out our Art Quilt books and are finally trying all these different techniques.   Last month we did fabric dying in our garage.   This is the marbleizing techinque done with shaving cream (one of the fabric dying techniques that we played with).

Step 1 - spray shaving cream about 1 inch thick.

Step 2 – using an eyedropper, drizzle fabric dye on shaving cream.

Step 3 - comb through dyes and place pre-washed fabric on shaving cream design.   Pat gently.
