Look at this beautiful package of Shades of White Quilties for our swap from Vicki Page ~thank you!!
Then, take a look at all the 6x6 inch quilties that Vicki made below -click on any photo for a larger more detailed photo:
** Now, I think I have figured out which quiltie you made as a gift for me, Vicki . . . is it the one with the stars in the sky??
Vicki wrote me an email where she explained her process: "These quilties were made by painting muslin with a shiney white paint then adding two different colors of glitter. Then is used some different mesh or tulle fabric ironed on some wonder under then ironed that on top of the painted surface. The rest of the quiltie was made from some old antique laces that I've collected at auctions, flea markets and antique shops over the past 5 years. Just love the stuff! Once I got into the box of my old laces I couldn't believe how much of it I had. Must have a addiction for the stuff! Some of the laces are also new, and some of it I tried tea staining and coffee staining. Just playing around but sure enjoyed it. I saw this technique in one of my magazines so had to give it a try."
