This is for the backing of a quilt. It is two pieces of 44 inch wide fabric sewn together. I put it together before I dyed it. I had never dyed a piece this big before. This method has a lot of learn-by-doing. It didn't come out the way I expceted, but I like it a lot. Part of the learn-by-doing is like batik dying. Even it its not like you expected, it's a good surprise. You learn not to have exacting expectations.
