Second Chance for SunMoonStars

Unhappy with my first try on the SunMoonStars, I decided to start again with new cloth and new ideas.  I spent several days just “debuting” cloth. Thinking about it.  Just going along.

I decided on using linen cloth scrap, backed by old gauze cloth–both were dyed with black walnut last year.  I chose silk square samples, previously dyed by me.  But I only had six of them.


So no 9-patch.  But I scrounged for other scraps–indigo-dyed linen and an indigo scrap over-dyed with chamomile.  There’s a small square of naturally-dyed organic cotton jersey as well.

Next time!

  1. The indigo will make a nice background. I love the shade of over dyed chamomile indigo! I look forward to see the piece progress.
