I should have not bothered with the miters on that square frame in the center - with this fabric, my job would have been simple with straight pieces.
I like the combination of Vicki's hand dyed fabric with my own. Mine is the very light one - accomplished by diluting the dye bath after my first tests came out too dark. Not anywhere near as scientific as what Vicki does - and really, I'd rather just buy her beautiful pieces anyway. I did these experiments at Judi's house a few months ago. It was a worthwhile experience as I discovered I just don't like hand dying.
