Hand Dyed Gradations

Wow, two posts in one day! I'm on a roll.
I have been busy dyeing fabric this summer, but haven't taken much time to post pictures. Here are a few of the gradation sets that I did. They are seven step gradations, with two "parent" colors, and the "children" are all of the shades that these two colors produce.


I used complimentary or almost complimentary colors for several of these sets, to get the interesting browns in between.


The weather is starting to cool off here, so I am hoping to get a little more dyeing in within the next week or two to last me through the winter! Then, I am planning on focusing more on quilting and other surface design like painting, stamping and silk screening.

I am offering these sets on my Etsy site if you are interested.
