I have been dying fabric with walnuts. It makes a great brown. Yes, yes I know brown is an ugly color, but a good brown is hard to find and endlessly useful. This is a funny gauze like fabric that has become insanly soft after the washing and dying process is over. All I can invision with it is BABY QUILTS!!!! Pair it up with some full bodied shades and some hand quilitng. I think it would ROCK! Good thing so many of my girlfriends are having babies....someone is going to get a walnut dyed baby quilt.
