    Some one on here earlier asked if others (like her) go away from quilt shows frustrated and not wanting to sew anything. This very thing is why alot of us go. To see the things people think up is amazing. You see a project and it gets your mind wondering like the ones posting here now. You start thinking of all the ways you could use this idea and expand on it; like the food coloring or dyes idea; that would be great. I love seeing what others come up with and they show us there are plenty of non-conventional ways to make quilts. This is a great quilt.

    I use a fabric filter for my daily coffee, and after many uses it has turned a very dark brown. I usually wash it by hand, but I do run it through the washing machine in a little lingerie bag from time to time. I guess the point I am trying to make is that paper filters are very strong too, and could probably be washed and still keep the coffee stained look. Some people had mentioned the issues of smell, mildew, etc. I don't think that would be a problem if the paper filters are washed first.
    Blessings!
