Girabaldi progress

Girabaldi went back on the rack yesterday to complete seaweed.  Quilting is complete!!

Since this piece is all hand painted, I couldn’t find any fabric to use as binding.  So today I have dyed some pretty sky blue.  I lightly bunched the strips up into balls with rubber bands. After the balls sat in the dye mixture for a bit, I lay them out on plastic.  My final step to give the strips a little more depth is to add rock salt and water to the strips.  The salt reacts with the dye sand washes out the spot a bit.

As soon as the binding is on, I will upload complete detailed picture.
