IQF and Ice Dyeing Basics

The next Quilt Festival workshop was Ice Dyeing Basics with Cindy Lohbeck. It was a half day workshop (afternoon) so I decided to go in early and do what little shopping I had planned in the morning.

I had always wanted to try ice dyeing and had seen several tutorials on You Tube, etc. but decided that I wanted a hands on experience to get me going. Well, I was in for a big surprise. Cindy doesn’t approach ice dyeing like any of the tutorials I had seen. I do like her technique much better and it makes more sense than the other approaches. My first attempts aren’t bad but I do have a bit of practicing to do before I’m really pleased with my results. Cindy had us working up our samples on fat quarters. It’s a good size to play with. Some of my samples are below.

All the samples were batched together and only three colors were used for the batch. The colors were clear yellow, red and blue. The next workshop was Advanced Ice Dyeing. Will post soon.
