Today I did a little of this and that.
I started a new quilt for my bed, a braid using the Accuquilt Go Chisel die.
These are my first three strips, of two color variations and a third will go in the mix.
My bed is high, so I am thinking about using a black ruffle for the outer side edges, what do you think?
I found a package of rolled felt that I bought years ago. It was yellowing from sitting so long, so I washed it out and threw into a dye pot. I used; brown, black, green, tan and yellow rit dye to make a mud bath;) The felt was pure white, so now it is aged tan. It is tablecloth size, so I might do applique on it with felt and make a holiday table cloth with it. The water was still dripping from the bottom, the original color was brown, but it dripped out and left a nice tan cast.
Since I had more mud bath left, I threw in some old wool yardage. I bought this from a store that sells, by the pound, so not sure if it was 100% wool. One took the dye and gave it a nice mottled look, the other got a little darker, so at least they are not brights anymore. They will be good for quilting projects, they have a nice soft loft.
