The baseball Easter egg... and other dye techniques

Here are the results of the 2014 Easter egg dyeing escapade. First up are the masking tape resist dyed eggs. Notice three of these are two colors. They were twice dyed.

Next are the solids, the two-toned, and an attempt at marbling (upper left green and lower left almost-white). This was not as successful as Ms. Stewart would lead you to believe. The half-and-half dipped are easier and more successful.

Then come the crayon resist Easter eggs. These have the greatest color and design potential: free-motion quilting patterns, feathers, a spiral and note the yellow baseball egg... front and center.

 Larry even printed out a picture of an official MLB Rawlings baseball as reference.
