We've Got The Blues

 This past week at the Quilt & Surface Design Symposium, Sandy Shelenberger mixed up two vats of indigo for her students. Before anything could be dyed, students chose a color or style of bead as their identification and sewed one to the corner of each piece of fabric. Then they began to pleat, stitch, gather, wrap and clamp. Soon, striking fabrics covered the design boards. The variety of patterning seemed almost endless, all in classic indigo blue.
