Framed 16 Patch

I got around to putting my 16 patch quilt in a frame this week. I found the frame at a used furniture store. I first hand quilted this to a piece of osnaburg fabric and then tea dyed the whole thing. The osnaburg has a speckling of cotton seed already in it for a even more antique look. I added a few buttons and I don't know if you can see the word I added, maybe clicking the picture will help. This little quilt was fun to make...you might see more of these from me.

Wendy - it looks great! The spaces on either side make it look like a game board and the buttons game pieces. And I could see your word after clicking on the photo...TRY. Nice work!

I love your little quilt...it's adorable. I've always been a bit anxious to 'age' things as I'm always worried that I'll ruin it. But your quilt looks so lovely antiqued that I may have to be brave and try it!

The effect of the tea-dyeing and neutrally-toned fabrics is really stunning. The buttons are gorgeous. What a beautiful hanging.

So where can a girl find this osnaburg fabric? I really like the idea of this fabric and the way you did your's up in the frame is super. I have a frame waiting, just needed someone to spark an idea as to what to use in it. Thanks, this is fun!

You have inspired me! I have some antique blocks that would look great like this! Nice job!
