Baby Star Quilt . . . . .

Remember this little quilt I made for my GoCutter demo?



It's all quilted already with binding!   Instead of washing it the traditional way, I soaked it in leftover coffee, then washed and dried it.


The white background was a little too white for me.  This gave it just enough to knock the edge off the whiteness.  I think this will be a perfect little table topper in the spring.
  
Finally getting some great fall weather and I'm talking about Spring already!

Looks lovely! Brace yourself...it will be very chilly in the morning hours this weekend. I too enjoyed the warmth of the day clearing out tons of leaves...temps dropping fast!

I love how the coffee took the edge off the white and softened the colors a bit. I have a few little quilts I need to do that to. Thanks for the idea! :0)

The coffee bath worked well. I am not fond of white, white in my quilts. Maybe for a snowman but I prefer even an off white or dulled white for them.

Oh I love it! The coffee makes it perfect!

Very nice. They definitely look like two different quilts.
Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Love the time worn look the coffee gave it!
