I cut this fabric up into sections (only a quilter would cut up perfectly good fabric and then sew it back together again!), pleated it, painted it with Procion MX dyes, washed it, removed the gathering threads, ironed it, sewed the sections back together, stamped it with thickened Procion MX dyes (first with leaves and then with the square-in-a-square stamp), and then sprayed it with a fine mist of the blue dye.
I really like how it turned out....certainly not your mother's drapery lining!! LOL

As you can see in the first Barker shot, he never totally lost the scar from his Springtime fling with the Copperhead. But he's still just as sweet as can be, and we love him dearly!!
