This is great. I am going to make a quilt out of them but i am going to stretch the pieces on a square candle holder of mine. Just one question, why do we use a blow dryer after the image id dry? Is this to set the color and make the image permanent?

Update.  Have a recorded version of my podcast where I mention this project and one more as well as a nifty free motion quilting site.  It isn't edited or uploaded yet.  This weekend following the thanksgiving holiday it should be posted!  Have a good one!

They need to be heat set.  I used my laundry dryer not a blow dryer.  I don't think a blow dryer would get hot enough.   Wink  You also can use an iron.

Two blog posts and a podcast later and it's done. 

I am sorry to try to take over your thread with posting about my own blog.  Message boards / blogs / other things are still slightly new for me. If it got too carried away just send me a message.  But if you want to hear what I say about your project (its all good) on the blog it is found here: http://scientificquilter.wordpress.com/2009/11/28/1-9-podcast-episode-3-color-chromatography-crochet-cell/  I promise this is the last post about it here.

Your post inspired me to try a few things myself.  Keep in mind these the first pictures I've posted to craftster.

Very cool, Scientific Quilter!  It is amazing the way you got those red stripes to work!

Great minds!  I was thinking how awesome quilts made from this will be for Christmas presents for the grandparents made with the kids art work for next year!

This is so neat! I can picture one of these designs as a pocket on a tote bag.
Really nice idea!

 Grin Thank you so much for a super-cool, easy-peasy craft! I've got my kids (3 & 6, both boys) doing aprons for their Grandmas- and a couple for themselves. This works really well on a BIG scale- we covered the kitchen table with plastic wrap (we have the super-wide professional stuff, from the Costco), they draw all over the aprons (they're just standard cotton/poly blend, the industral kitchen kind that you can get super-cheap at restaurant supply stores), and then we drip 'em together- you can get a lot of different effects, with it on a larger surface, not to mention the secondary effects from the runoff along the back of the fabric, on the table. This is fantastic I'm-bored material, here!  Grin
