Arashi Shibori


At my quilt guild tonight, we had a show and tell of the hand dyed pieces from a recent dye workshop. There were piles of beautiful cottons, Kona cotton and silk charmeuse awaiting an opportunity to be incorporated into a quilt or wearable. Here is a piece of arashi shibori (folded and pole wrapped) that I did. "Arashi" translates to "storm." The fabric is a bamboo/cotton blend and it has a soft finish and a fabulous hand. I would love to turn this piece into a long vest--it would move and flow as one walked. Here is a picture of the full piece.
