I finished up with the fabric I rusted - I mentioned it in an earlier post while I was impatiently waiting for the fabric to develop enough rust for my liking.
Bead Journal Project (okay, I'm a little behind! lol). Also, I made it up into a small art quilt which will be my March donation to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). This makes my 15th AAQI quilt! Can I get a whoop?
So, how thrifty was this quilt? I used a scrap of cotton for the fabric I rusted. The high tech items needed for the rusting came from an old coffee can of nuts & bolts from dh's workshop. The "rusting solution" is a mix of white vinegar and water - can't get much more inexpensive than that. The beads came from my stash and have already been used throughout a couple other projects so they didn't owe me anything. The binding and backing fabric as well as the fast finish trangles for hanging were two pages from an upholstery fabric sample book and it came from the selvage center. A whole box of these samples only cost a dollar.
