CQMagOnline Article: Painted Backgrounds

The dragonfly below is from the Painted Backgrounds article in the October 2009 issue of CQMagOnline, featuring painted or dyed backgrounds for use in crazy quilting, or other applications.

The dragonfly and the background are painted on Dupioni silk.

The article includes techniques for dying silk ribbon, lace, embroidery threads, fabrics, etc., without getting undesirable muddy or brown areas.

This Dupioni silk "background" was dyed with OzeCraft fabric dyes.
