Quilted Playmat Made With Naturally Dyed Scraps

"Last November I went to the first of a regular gathering of local queer-identified folks who are into crafting. We surrounded a campfire, each lugging our own big pots and bags full of scrap fabric and yarn. Organizers brought a few items to use as natural dyes, plus mordants. (I wish I remembered more of the process so I could share it with you here, but I was happy to just be a participant and absorb from the others! This is not an area of comfort for me and I was glad to follow others' leads.) I returned home with fabric that I'd dyed with pokeweed (orange), red onion (greenish gray), and butterfly pea flower (pale bluish lavender), plus a little yarn that I'd dyed with the red onion as well. I loved how the colors looked together, and thought to myself I ought to try to make a quilted playmat for the new baby we are expecting!"
