Ice Dyeing

I’ve been doing some ice dyeing of fabric and scarves recently.  The effect can be made to look like tie-dye projects.  It involves soaking fabric, twisting or folding it, laying it in a pan, sprinkling on powdered dye, and then pouring ice cubes over the whole.  A day later the ice has melted into the fabric and the dye has dispersed, in surprising ways.

I have a good supply of hand-dyed fabric now, my next challenge is to use it in some quilts.  Here are a few samples of the scarves.
