I made this following an article in CPS where you dye muslin with coffee and it's turned out fine. I think the secret was to stitch in a contrasting thread because my first attempt with cream thread was very bland.
Brilliant ~ Was that the Ruth Rae article ~ love her work ~Check out her blog where you find so much inspirationhttp://ruthrae.blogspot.com/.Not forgotten the circus quilt ~ will be posing Tuesday, Judy x
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
This is lovely. I really like the scribbly stitching, it works really well in the dark brown with the dyed muslin.
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!Hugs,kari x
