Houston, We Have A Problem

My new fascination with fabric dye is creating a problem...it's growing the fabric stash that I have been working so hard to trim down! I think I need to plan some projects and do some stitching before my next dyeing session. How quickly do you think I can use up 7 yards of hand dyed fabric?

Well, your "problem" is so gorgeous. What a beautiful selection of fabics you have ended up with. I have wanted to try dying like that, is there a book that tells you how much dye and such to use?

7 yards of one color would make a lovely cathedral windows. With the slight variation in each wondow it would definetly add some zing.
