Using Dyed Cloth

I made this following an article in CPS where you dye muslin with coffee and it's turned out fine. Dyedcloth I think the secret was to stitch in a contrasting thread because my first attempt with cream thread was very bland.


  1. Brilliant ~ Was that the Ruth Rae article ~ love her work ~
    Check out her blog where you find so much inspiration
    Not forgotten the circus quilt ~ will be posing Tuesday, Judy x

  2. Yes, Judy, that's the one - thanks for the link, am now off to see her lovely work. And look forward to seeing your quilt for the swap!! Evie xx

  3. This is lovely. I really like the scribbly stitching, it works really well in the dark brown with the dyed muslin.

  4. Oooh, finally catching up with everyones blogs, yours is looking so great - love what you have been doing lately, gorgeous quilties, lovely art doll and this piece is so delicious!
