Remember Jean from Indigo Dyeing Days?? One of the things she dyed were old crocheted doilies from her mother-in-law. She intended to put them together in a quilt. Well, she did and here it is in her own words.
Here is the wall hanging I made featuring my mother-in-law's doilies--many of which I dyed in your indigo vat. Some are the natural color of the perle cotton, so I went for the layered look. There are also bits of vintage lace and trims and some mother of pearl buttons. In the background patchwork are bits and pieces of "hand-dyes by Beth". Over all I'm pleased. The quilting looks very unprofessional. It was hard to keep it steady and smooth over all those bumpy layers.
What a beauty!!
