Over Dyeing

Here are the pictures of my fabric dyeing. The top one was dyed first in a hot pink bath and then scrunched and tied with wraps and put into a purple bath.
The second picture is of a bright blue dye job and then overdyed in a dark blue, with fabric manipulation as well. This is only a section of both pieces. They are actually about 70" x 70" with a lot of variety in the mottling.
When I put the 2 pieces side by side, they look like they match. I was originally thinking of just using one piece as a background and cutting it up, but now may use both for an art quilt.
I am still debating whether to discharge dye one or both as well.
As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated.
