Inked and drying..

It's taken a while to get to this point, but I'm finally here!! (Insert relieved sigh) One of the final steps I had to do with the Lancaster quilt, was to give it a light ink wash over the top. The quilt front was rather stark and from the beginning, I had in mind to ink wash it, to 'dirty' it up a bit. As this quilt is for an older gentleman, in keeping with the masculine colouring I felt a stark cream background wouldn't be it's best look. After inking the entire front, I'm very happy with the results. It's even given one section of the quilt picture, a more three dimensional look than it had before. Definite Bonus!!! When it's done drying, I'll post final pictures of the finished quilt. Until next time.-Julie. 


  1. Wow, this looks amazing!! I love the way you have given this a SEPIA finish. It's going to be stunning when all finished.

  2. Interesting.....Can't wait to see the finished quilt....
