My sister is the best, and we had so much fun together!!!
While at her house I saw the coolest idea for displaying a quilt (one of my quilts, yes; she has a number of them). I'll bet few of you have ever thought of this...I sure hadn't!
First of all, she wrapped my leaf quilt around the corner of her kitchen sitting room here. Pretty clever, but the best part is....
This! What do you think is happening here? Any guesses?
How about now?
Mary's husband is a chemist, and he nonchalantly explained, "Some of the molecules in some of the dyes fluoresce..." This is how the quilt looks when the room is darkened with a black light shining on it!
From what I could tell, it was mostly the hand-dyeds that glowed...those skies were done with Procion dyes. But the inner border is a cotton lame, and that glows too.
The possiblities are endless, aren't they?
I have been stitching up a storm for CQMagOnline...have had a few big plot twists in my own life (must not discuss these at present...but they are good ones!)....and got some flowers done for my Spring CQ too, which will go in my next post this morning.
It's so good to be back!
