Beautiful Scarves

My quilt group met this past week and did a fun project together.  Based on the article, "Tie Transfer Dyeing," by Kathy Barinholtz from the October/November 2010 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine, we created beautiful silk scarves for ourselves from men's silk ties that we collected from thrift shops.  It was a quick and fascinating project to do together, and so fun to see how each scarf turned out differently.  I am so new at blogging that I can't figure out how to add a caption to each photo separately, but the pictures show the steps we went through to make our scarves.  The most interesting thing to each of us was how the various ties we used gave our scarves completely different color designs than we had imagined we would get!  I am linking up to Really Random Thursday ( or Friday!) at Live a Colorful Life.
