block and fabric

This little 6 1/2" block is for my guild. I am responsible in supplying the fabric and instructions for a block. It was suggested that I pick a 6" finished block and maybe some colors that could be used in a baby quilt for donations.  I choose this dot fabric for the background and everyone can use what fabric they want for the star.

This is a piece of rusted fabric that I had sitting around. I didn't think it had enough rust on it so I decided to take some tea leaves and add it to boiling water and then put it on top of the fabric. In these pictures the fabric is still wet but after washing it out it was alot lighter in color. I'm not sure if this is the right way to do it but it did turn out okay. I may use some turquoise dye on it next.

  1. I like the way your fabric came out and can't wait to see it with the turquoise which I think will look very good!
