A Buried Treasure

For years my dear friend Nancy has been telling me about her daughter Jane, and Jane’s wonderful farm. I recently began following Jane’s blog and love to read about her Sheep and lambs. Her farm produces wool, meat and garden produce.

Recently Jane blogged about a “Soil Quilt”. A friend of hers sent her a square of white fabric and asked her to bury it in her garden.

Well, in Jane’s last post, she unearthed her square and I was surprised and impressed to see how the earth had “dyed” her fabric.

Please read all about that in her most recent post:  https://autumnlarchfarm.wordpress.com/2015/05/26/weaving-the-great-soil-quilt-continued/

In case you missed it in Jane’s post, here’s the link to the other soil dying results:  https://parideazafarmart.wordpress.com/collaboration-with-soil/

It’s very interesting to see the variety of the different pieces. Kind of makes me want to dig a hole and bury some fabric in the back yard. Thanks Jane, for letting me share your soil quilt adventure!

Have you ever buried fabric? Or do you think you will now  🙂 ?

By the way – the Fiberistas painted an art banner to decorate Main Street in Watertown, WI again this year. Last year was the first time we participated (you can read about that adventure at: http://chrisquilts.net/blog/?p=4855). The art walk was this past Tuesday, and the banners look great! If you’re in the area, please drive by (or better yet, walk) to see them all. If not, here’s a picture of both sides of ours – its in front of Keck’s furniture store! (sorry for the picture quality, the sun was low and bright)
