Cream on Cream Quilt..
I started this quilt so long ago, I've forgotton when, so I'm unpicking it and thought I'd redo it with CQ.
This quilt was way before CQ and I think even before I was interested in sane patchwork.
What was I thinking back then!
I used craft wadding as a backing, which I will have to leave, as all the lace is stitched to the wadding.
I used all bits and pieces of lace that I could find, and old doilies that I tea dyed.
I might take off some of the tea dyed lace as there is too much of it and they look a bit too dark for the cream on cream look.
I worked little bullion stitch roses on some of the blocks, so I will try and work around them if I can.
I'm thinking I might cut the blocks up and reassemble them to look more like they are pieced for CQ.
Well, this and all the other stuff I need to get done should keep me out of trouble for a while..
