#5

When I was a kid and my Dad, now a retired doctor, would leave for work he always made a point of quoting a line from a popular Dunkin Doughnuts commercial. As he turned the knob to head out for another long day , he would look back over his shoulder and say," Time to make the doughnuts."


Now this fabric doesn't remind me exactly of doughnuts, but as I was quilting around the swirls this afternoon, I started to crave cinnamon rolls or strudel. And that made me think of my Dad and his doughnut making. That's it. It doesn't go any deeper than that.

Love the fabric. Reminds me of how my pole series reminds me of the telephone poles in an old neighborhood I used to live in. I love that you keep moving forward with your work. Keep it up!

I just love your designs. I wish I lived closer to you, I would love to see how you do that!

These look great! Did you do it with a bleach pen?

We still say "Time to make the doughnuts" at our house!

Hey thanks everyone.
Sarah- I dyed the base fabric orange and then made the swirl pattern with a tjanting tool. It's a traditional tool for drawing with wax.

Oh I just realized you were probably asking about the orange one. I actually stamped that oval pattern with a potato stamp, dyed the fabric orange, took the wax out and then rewaxed the fabric using a tjanting tool.
