I wanted an aged quilt to hang on a quilt hanger to make a display that you can see through the doorway into our Master Bedroom.
So, I had an old (NOT ANTIQUE) quilt that I haven't used in a long time.
Here is a picture of it before aging.
I put it in my washing machine and sprinkled it with Walnut Ink Crystals.
I let it run a short wash cycle, stopped it from rinsing and let it spin out.
I then placed it into a Dryel Dry Cleaning bag in the Dryer until it was almost dry.
Removed it from the bag and finished drying it in the dryer.
This is how my display turned out!
I also made the Cupboard Prints of Mr. & Mrs. Pearce.
Please note, if you do this aging technique in your washing machine, You will want to let your washer do a full wash with detergent in it to clean it out after doing the aging process so as not to get the walnut ink on any of your good clothes!Prim Blessings to all... From Becky@ The Crow's Nest
