this rainy desert series was inspired by the colors of the desert in winter and early spring, just as things are getting ready to bloom. the way the quiet sits around you as the raindrops fall slowly. the way there is so much hope as the ground is preparing to shift. this series features my hand dyed fabrics in varying peaches, greens and aquas.

note: due to the nature of recycled fabrics being pre-used, and also the nature of hand dyed fabrics - any markings, discoloration, or any other "spots" on these fabrics are to be considered part of the fabric itself. each has been washed before being put into the creations.

the hand dyeing process is lengthy, but humbling (as i love being able to create projects with fabrics dyed with my own hands!). it includes choosing the dye colors, prepping the fabric in soda ash, applying the dye, and finally rinsing, and washing/drying/ironing them before use. this process takes up to 48 hours per piece of fabric. i dye in small batches only, in order to ensure that each fabric created is one of a kind and completely unique. even if i were to use the same dye color, the textures and tones created in each piece can never be 100% recreated.

all of my items are handmade by me, with love, as one-of-a-kind pieces of usable and functional art.

this quilt measures 60x64". it has been machine quilted following the diamond pattern with a coordinating colored thread using 80/20 cotton/poly batting. it is backed with the softest vintage sheet purchased at a thrift shop in joshua tree, and finished with an apriltwoeightyquilts tag. handmade binding is machine sewn using a vintage yellow fabric.

this quilt is machine washable on cold and may be tumble dried on low. please see the care page on my site at www.apriltwoeightyquilts.com for more info.
