    How did you ever come up with the idea to dye it? What a great idea--looks great!

    It not only toned it down but it made all of the fabrics coordinate. It was such a great idea to dye it. I will have to store that one away for future use.

    That's ingenious! Now is there a way to ensure it won't fade when he washes it? I haven't used that dye although I know it's been around forever so it must have addressed that aspect -- ??

    I'm hopeing that if the Rit Dye fades the dye in the pieced fabric prints will fade too, which is the goal anyway. It was too bright! :oops:

    Please do! I'm sure it wasn't an original idea! When I think of all the things/ideas/techniques I've copied from the wonderful quilters on this board I know how lucky I am to have found the Board. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    What a good idea! It gives the quilt that "aged" look.
