I’m always looking for interesting fabrics that can be used in art quilts. Yesterday I found this scarf at Kohls. It was a less than $8.00 for this piece. The result was close to a yard of fabric — 100% rayon, beautiful weave, with some ribbon embellishing.
Here’s part of a wool sweater that I made about 25 years ago. I’ve been moving it from place to place ever since. Everyone in my family has outgrown it, but I don’t want to give it away. I’ve decided to recycle it into an art project.
More images of the wool (this time, the inside). Now I understand why people frequent thrift stores looking for fabrics. I was in Target the other day and saw a few things that would have been perfect for art quilts. Anyway … time to broaden my horizons and keep an eye out for “fabrics” for my creations.
