A Quilter's Sin


Well, I am about to start a new quilt and I want the fabric to be black with pink. Yes I do believe there is a difference between pink/black and black/pink. This is how I distinguish the difference. Pink/black would be with the background of the fabric being pink and the print in black. The black/pink would be the opposite, the background black and the print pink. This maybe just a technicality but it is what I think sooooo, the reason for the dye.
I have a lot of black/white fabric. I don't want to buy any more fabric soooo I am going to dye the fabric with the Rit dye. I know this is probably a quilter's sin because it isn't hand dying but I don't care. I want it done, I want it easy, and I want to do it this way. I have used Rit many times in the past with no problems. Not that I have a problem with hand dying, I actually like the outcome of the dying, but like I said, I don't want to take the time. I want a uniform dye job and I do think it will be a more uniform dying with the Rit. I guess I am justify my laziness.
Well I best be getting started. I will post a picture of the completed dye job when completed. I hope it turns out the way I want for this project.

Can't wait to see how it ends up. I've not used RIT before but have wanted to.

Mushrooms are amazing! How delightful .. I have expect to see some little fairies in there somewhere. 8-)

I have not used Rit dye in years and only to dye clothing that has had stains. I am looking forward to seeing how the black and white fabric turns out.

I think Rit dyes work fine. I'm waiting to see your results. I do love the black and white. I am currently collecting B&W so was interested to see what you have.

Rit dye is great. I can't wait to see how it turns out, but mostly I can't wait to see the project you will put it in.
