Flying Geese Update

I’m sure you haven’t forgotten my flying geese fiasco. Well, someone suggested tea dying this little bit.

I didn’t have tea on hand, but I had coffee. So I gave it a good soak overnight.

Here is the result.

And the back, which just looks dirty to me now.

Here’s a side by side comparison.

The coffee definitely took the brightness out. So I think it is an improvement.

Have a great day!

    You’re having some interesting experiences with this little quilt, Katy. Have you ever used Rit color remover? I’ve used small amounts in a bowl to remove color from fabric. You don’t have a lot of control but it might get rid of the blues that bled into the whites.

    I often use tea dyeing for getting rid of the blah white!!!
