One fat quarter in bright yellow and red in my signature Caracol motif.
22" wide by 18" long of 100% high threadcount cotton.

Caracol is the spanish name for snail. I was inspired by the carved motifs on the Mayan ruins of the Yucatan peninsula. The pattern is bold and crisp and is particularly effective in this vibrant colorway.

To create this piece, I apply melted wax in a snail pattern onto jonquil yellow fabric I had previously dyed. Then I immersed the fabric in a red dyebath.

I boil the fabric to remove the wax and any excess dye. My final wash is a handwash in lavender hemp soap, to soften the fabric. I have tested this fabric for colorfastness in 140 degree water.

All of my fabrics are colorfast and preshrunk. You don't need to be concerned that my fabric will ruin your quilt or art fiber piece when you wash it!

Please contact me with any questions.
