I enjoy creating fabric palette inspired by photographs. This palette was inspired but this photo of a of a deep red rose. The greens are cool greens to compliment the deep reds.
I use Fiber Reactive Procion MX Dyes with a low water immersion dyeing technique and vary the technique to get high and low textured fabrics. All of my fabrics are soaked once with Synthrapol in water at least 140 degrees, rinsed and Synthrapol-washed again in hot water and rinsed a final time in cold water. There are no fragrances used in any part on my process. The fabric is preshrunk and ready for you to use.
I have done color fastness testing of my general processes and find the dyes to be colorfast, however you should do a test yourself of this specific fabric to make sure it is colorfast for your washing process. I always machine wash my finished quilts with my fabrics but use a Color Catchers® or similar product as a precaution to catch any loose dyes.
I create these fabric palettes with 1 yard lengths and do not cut the fabric into fat quarters until you place an order. I sell it by fat quarter sizes. If you order 2 quantities of a palette you will receive ½ yard cuts. If you order 3 quantities of a palette you will receive a ½ yard cut plus a fat quarter of each fabric. If you order 4 quantities you will receive 1 yard of each fabric.
