"EXCEPT THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE, THEY LABOR IN VAIN THAT BUILD IT"......Ps.127:1a

Needed a Change

Sometimes I just get in the mood to sit down and want to quilt.  I especially felt that way after painting so many signs and pieces of furniture.  I just wanted a simple quilt, nothing fancy, and that is what I did.  After crazy quilting it by hand, I tea-dyed the whole quilt to age it.
I'm not sure what it is about an old quilt with me.  I don't ever like to make my quilts look bright and fresh.  They always need to look like they've been loved for years.
That's me....
