OK, fess up, folks, which of you would save this piece of fabric?
I am thrilled to report that not only did I save that sucker, I am USING IT!!!!
I wrote last week about my sudden desire to make work that is gnarly, not neat, and yesterday I realized that somewhere in my stash was a box of distressed fabrics that would go so well with my red postage stamp quiltbits. And what did I find in that box, but some seriously beat up materials, which I am using as the face layer of some more quiltbits.
I am deliberately being NOT NEAT, and let me tell you what a liberating feeling that is. How many times have you started quilting and realized that for some reason your top layer is bigger than the rest of your quilt sandwich?
