I'd try a quick tea-dye and see what happens. If you don't leave it in the tea bath for long, it might get just "off" white enough that you will like it better.
I am sure you will get better ideas but for myself, there are times when I want to get off white where I use either tea of coffee to darken it -- but those may get you a little darker than you like. The less time in the brew, though, the less color. Those are such pretty delicate fabrics in your block!
I was going to say what Pat said. lol The block is very pretty.
Just let me wash them. LOL!!! I used to turn all my whites off white until my mother had a lesson for me. ;) Pat suggestion sounds right on, give it a shot.
I agree...tea dye it!
I think Terrie and Pat have it right with the tea soak. Good luck!
I was told that back in the day, quilters steeped their whites in weak tea to get an antique look. You could try it on a sample and see what happens.
I agree with the tea dye recommendations. But I've also been wanting to try the technique where you stain/paint on areas of the lace. Your lace selection is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see what you create with it.SewCalGalwww.sewcalgal.blogspot.com
I love your laces on that crazy block...just so elegant!Micki
That block is so pretty with that trim on it.
