I finished up a quilt top the other day— Charm-a-long. and it just didn’t work….you know the background was wwwaaaayyyy too light for the whole quilt. So, after a bit of debating I decided to give it a dunk and antique it.
Just in case you would like to antique your own quilt top here is a quick little instruction on how to:
- big bowl
- hot water
- tan dye by Rit. I used the liquid kind
- item you are antiqueing
Fill up the bowl with a bit of hot water.
Dump a bunch of tan dye. Don’t be shy now…….Stuff your quilt top into the water
Let it sit for a bit…..
Rinse the top until the water runs clear. Throw into the dryer or dry outside for a bit.
HINT: if you want a uniform color than mix it into the water. If you want it splotchy a bit, then don’t mix it.
What do you think? How do you antique your quilt tops?
