Some of the pieces I've bought over the years have too many colors in them, or the wrong colors, or they're too bright. I've found plenty that do work though!
I rediscovered a hand marbled piece:
All of the points on this star came from one piece of hand dyed fabric. It's been fun to cut out squares and strips from one piece of fabric so that they don't necessarily look like they all came from the same place.
Because my collection of hand-dyes is limited I've been supplementing them with batiks.
