    I found this pattern on Moda Bake Shop. It's made from Legacy for a Cause charm squares. I recently visited the store where the sample is displayed, and I have to admit that I like my quilting scheme better than theirs! I tea-dyed it to make it look old-timey.

    Wonderful. It does have an old-fashioned look to it. Your quilting is beautiful.

    How did you go about tea-dyeing it?

    Yes, I just put about 4 tea bags in a big bowl of hot water, let it steep until it was dark, then put the quilt in it for about 30 minutes. I did put it in the dryer for a while (I wanted to set the tea dye and let it get crinkly to show off the quilting), then I took it out and kind of blocked it and let it finish drying on its own. I love the way the tea dye makes stuff look!

    Another question...how big is your quilt? I'd like to try the tea-dyeing on a wall-hanging. Thanks for the info.

    This quilt is only about 20" square, a perfect size for a small wall hanging. Here's the link for the instructions:

    You might want to Google tea dying--there seem to be lots of ways to do it.
