folkfibers Rinsing fabric after a tannin bath. Next step is soaking in an alum bath and then the cotton will be ready to dye. This is the mordanting process I use most when dyeing cellulose fibers. 2d

folkfibers Pieced together this quilt top using fabric I dyed with fustic, goldenrod, and pomegranates. I've made this quilt before in a queen size and named it the Idaho Quilt, it's fun making a smaller version of it. 2w

folkfibers Throwback to 2008 on a miniature pony farm owned by an Amish family in Pennsylvania.
We arrived with the intentions of photographing ponies wearing quilts and hats, yet it became so much more. That day, those children, they continue to inspire me. @joshgoleman

  •   ambatalia Againhi Maura, I wanted to invite you to a project that I'm doing called #giveINdigo. I'm calling all indigo dyers from around the world to send me just one strip of indigo 6"x 10" ( doesn't have to be exact ) I will be making a boro style quilt and auctioning off at west coast craft in SF in December. I love your work and would be so thrilled if you could participate. The quilt would be auctioned off and all proceeds will go to #internationalrivers thank you 1mon
  •   folkfibers @ambatalia sure thing email me details : maura@folkfibers.com 4w
