It's Finally Here!!

I am so excited to be featured in the June/July issue of Quilting Arts Magazine !! My Iced Parfait Dyeing is one of the featured "Staycation' activities for this summer. A fun and unique way to get great one-of-a-kind fabric.  I hope you check it out and create some of your own Iced Parfaits!

Here are a few other pieces I have
 made. I can't seem to stop once I start!!

I hope you try this fun dyeing technique and send me your pictures, links  and/or comments. I'd love to see your work.


  1. Congratulations Carol! The article is awesome and just think how many other artist you'll inspire with your work!!

  2. Hi Carol, I tried my ice dyeing with your parfait and had some interesting results. Thanks again for the idea.

  3. Hi, Carol... great article! I had to try your method, and love the results I got! I just posted them on my blog: http://tiedyejudy.blogspot.com/2012/07/new-addiction-aka-im-glutton.html. Needless to say, this will not be the last time I make iced parfaits! Many thanks,

  4. Hello Carol, I searched your name and was thrilled to find your blog! I read your QA article and have now tried it three times. I've gotten mixed results. I'm not sure if it's because I live in NC and it's hot outside so the ice melts fairly quickly. I end up with the fabric on top sitting out of the the water in the end, but that piece isn't that bad looking. It's the second piece that I put in that usually doesn't look too good. Anyway, my big question (and perhaps the problem I'm having) is what colors of dye are you using to do this? I've got the Procion Dyes that are MX (manufacturered mixed) and not the ones from the dye company that they mix. So mine are primary colors and when they spread, really not as much color mixing as your pieces have. Should I be using the dyes that are mixed at the for example ProChem or Dharma? So maybe it would help if I knew what colors it is that you're using. Thanks in advance for your help.

  5. How exciting! Your article inspired me to try ice dying, it's soooo much fun! Here's a link to some I have done, although not parfait style: http://cynthiaf.ca/my-art/busy-bee-and-more-ice-dye-fun/ and i have more going right now- it's so addicting! :D Thanks for such a great and informative article!
