Tree Quilt Dyeing Part 1

I made the following concentrates:

2 cups deep yellow (8.2g)
1 cup fuchsia (8.7g)
1 cup turquoise (12g)
1 cup better black (24g)

I used 36 pieces of fabric, 1/24 of a yard each (9″x7″ roughly). For each of the following dye mixtures I added a piece of wet fabric, followed by 2 tbsp of soda ash solution. Mixed well, then added a 2nd piece of wet fabric, followed by 2 tbsp of soda ash solution. And then again with a 3rd piece of fabric and soda ash.
