Rust Dying Fabric

OK - Let me just say, by choice, I don't own much brown colored fabric. I have made a few "brown" quilted art pieces but mostly in an effort to create a masculine looking piece. I've even seen and heard of dying fabric with rust before but it never interested me. . . until this week. So, I took my usual walk with my dog and collected several interesting rusted pieces along our rural road, then checked in our shed and got busy. It was a bit messy but here's the results. I'm not sure of how I'll use these 4 fat quarters yet, but we'll see.
