I am working on this "auction" quilt and I decided to back it with dyed fabric instead of plain white (boring). I washed 5 yards in the washer then dumped it in my cement mixer - the BEST piece of kit for dyeing large quantities of fabric or wetting paper for paste paper or dipping paper before printing or soaking silk screens. I am guessing it is 2 X 3. This is the fabric for the quilt backing.
The best part is that YOU TOO can have a cement mixer for about $6. from Home Depot. They are right next to the Sakrete mix. Look up; they are usually on the shelf above.
