Luana Rubin of eQuilter.com inteviews Hungarian textile artist Anna Maria Dolanyi - the founder and former President of the Hungarian Patchwork Guild - about the "Hungarian Blue-Dyed Quilts" exhibit at the 2012 Quilt Festival in Houston. The quilts were the result of a challenge, to design quilts using traditional Hungarian blue and white printed fabrics. These fabrics are block-printed by hand in a batik-type process, using a resist print and then dipped 5-10 times in the indigo dye bath. They have been traditionally used for Hungarian folk costumes. Anna has taken this beautiful exhibit around the world to many venues, in an effort to revive this dyeing art of dyed fabrics! (pun intended!) Includes work by Judit Berente, Elizabeth Bodgan, Panni Szabo, Kelenfolt Group, Maria Kovalik, Csillaghegyi Oltogetok Group, Istvanne Juhasz, Agnes Szomor, Kelenfolt Group, and Ferencne Somogyi.
