How to Sew an Ohio Star Quilt Square

Thu, Apr 11, 24

It’s hard to explain the simple joy that comes from selecting colors, cutting and piecing together fabric. Quilting is a craft that is simple, accessible and creative. There’s no “wrong” way to do it. You can follow traditional patterns made up of triangles and squares, or you can intuitively piece together a design of your own. I love quilting because you can use every precious bit of fabric and leave almost nothing to waste. In my practice, minimizing waste is so important as a way to reduce environmental impact.

Our Full Process

Thu, Aug 24, 23

Step 1 First, we cut undyed fabric from the bolt and prepare it for dyeing. Step 2 Next, we soak the fabric in a mordant bath of alum overnight to help the color last longer and look brighter and more vibrant. We use large storage tubs to ensure that the fabric can move around freely in the mordant bath. Step 3 We create a dye bath in a large stockpot with plant material, similar to making tea. We add boiling water to the plant matter and strain it into a pot of water. Step 4 Afterward, we add the prepared...
