Quilting the Teabag Background

didn't get any further with my eco dying experiment but I did sit for quite a while and stitch on the teabag stone wall which covers about half the quilt I want to submit for jury selection Going Green 2020. This is the tea bag fabric and you can see the random colouration of the bags and my stitching above. This sort of pattern is time consuming but the teabags now look like aged leather and have a very definite texture which is what I was trying to achieve. Once I get this completed I think the quilt will come together quite quickly but I can only work on this for so long and then need a break. I have three weeks to complete this before I must submit my completed photos and my daughter just dropped off two small tents and some mending that she would like to have done before the end of the month as they are going camping the long weekend of Waitangi in New Zealand. Today I will try walking down to work to attend the first staff meeting for the year. This will be the longest walk I have had since surgery so fingers crossed
