Finished Katazome pieced top


Wow...it's been a month since I tried my hand at blogging. Just no time with the survey. But I needed a break and so made a new quilt. I've finished the top.
This one is made from Katazome fabric from Nautilus FiberArt . It is worth seeing how Katazome is made.
It's a Japanese method of dying fabrics that uses a resist paste applied through a stencil. Nautilus does this the "old way" and the resulting fabric has the most wonderful feel and look. Karen Miller is a true artist.

Beautiful!!! How are you going to edge it?
I sure would love to see how many of these fabrics are made. When I did a workshop with Lonni Rossi I got at least an idea how fabric got painted and that was exciting!
