Some of you might wonder what we do here in Romania to keep ourselves busy. Well, to be truthful not much; it seems that I am forever looking for something to do. In one of these searches I decided I wanted to make a lap quilt.
Places to buy fabric in Romania are scarce so I decided to dye my own fabric. This decision not only solved the problem of having no fabric I liked, but also was another way to spend my time.
After experimenting many times using many different kinds of teas and plants I came up with these 4 colors.
The next step was to figure out how to put all my pieces together and what I wanted my quilt to look like.
Then I had sewing, sewing and more sewing to do.
Before I knew it a couple of months had gone by without me being as bored, and I also have a way to stay warm in my cold room.
