After setting a couple of weeks in a jar with cochineal, Osage orange and annanetto I opened the jar and added a couple teaspoons of washing soda (to bring out more orange color), heated it gently for an hour and let it stand over night. This morning I washed out the wool. This is the dramatic colors I achieved for the Sun/Moon quilt.
At night I'm still working on my wool quilt. This past week it's been the fiddle head ferns brought to life with hand-quilting. They are so cute they look like little soldiers in a line.
