I have been slowly buying antique quilts. Not that I'm that fond of the traditional patterns, but I love to look at the work that was put into it, all these small pieces of used fabric (often old flour sacks) recycled into a larger piece. They are usually very soft from numerous uses and washes, and I hate seeing the ones that are full of holes go to waste. So I set up to start dyeing them, to then patch them and mend them, to give them another life..
I am still working on getting the colors I'd like, but am getting there..
I also dyed some scraps to patch the holes and I love how they came out:
Now off to the mending phase... that's if his Majesty Oops lets me of course...
