Cherries Jubilee

I had a wonderful time using my ice dyed fabrics for the cherries and flat dyed fabric for the background. I seem to have food on the brain these days, but this was the first image that sprang to mind with the theme of Jubilation.

  2. Sumptuous Helena. What a great use of your ice dye fabric. Also love the irregular lines and colour variation on the bowl.

  3. Your cherries look absolutely delicious - and I love the use of a dark background to offset the bowl and fruit.

  8. Food again!, and brilliantly done as always. Now I have no source of snow in the winter I shall have to consider trying ice dyeing, especially as your results are so good.

  9. You got some brilliantly saturated colours from your ice-dyeing, Helena. Absolutely perfect for the cherries and how they zing against the charcoal and white. Must try ice-dyeing if this is what you can get. Hilary

  11. Your cherries are all so different just like in "real life" and they look ever so yummy! After seeing postings of snow dying and ice dying that you have done and then directions in "Quilting Arts" magazine, I have done some ice dying this summer with fabulous results! I'm hooked on the crystalline effect/look of the resulting fabrics!
