Aging, Me and A Quilt
We all aging, but instead of thinking about that today, I decided a couple of days ago to dig out some old quilts that I stitched years and years ago, talking maybe 16 years ago, before I found primitive quilts. I bought this "egg" fabric, liked it because it had bird eggs on it with the name of the bird it came from. Never put it out on display, and I even made a matching one, somewhat larger. Colors not me, so in that Cheri Payne tradition, I only had some walnut crystals, mixed that together and sprayed the quilt to dull those bright yellows and blues and give the quilt that aged, primitive look. Came out okay. I will use Cheri's recipe next time with the coffee and tea, easier to come by and far less expensive.
Hope everyone had a safe, fun holiday. Thinking of my home state, Texas, with all the wildfires burning, loss of precious lives and so many homes, land and property.
