This time she dyed using Egyptian Cotton, more expensive but so worth the extra cost per yard. It has a luster and sheen that make all of the fabrics' colors have more depth. We have tried different kinds of experiments- like the ombre mottled purple that I LOVED, and she refused to charge me for since it was mottled. She has rusted fabrics for me, distressed fabrics, and done potato dextrin resists that are sheer poetry.
A quilter is nothing without good resources - good fabric that excites, inspires and pushes one to think of different color combinations. Annette is the lady behind all these beauties. And thank heavens I found her.
