tray-dyed with scarlet Procion MX dye, still wet
dry, but un-ironed
While at the SAQA/SDA conference in March I purchased several lengths of cloth I had not worked with before, and this is one of them: satin organza. It has a higher momme (14mm) than the more traditional organza. I'm not even sure that is the proper way to describe it, but I can tell you that it has a heavier "hand" than traditional organza, and there is a certain extra tactile quality. This will be used to serve to stabilize the back of a collaborative quilt that has oodles of small pieces. Each of said small pieces has a distinct mark which denotes the maker. In using the organza we hope that these marks will ghost through the sheer. We'll see.......
