Quilt

A friend showed us a scrap quilt she had made where you cut strips of several sizes and many fabrics, then put them in a sack and take them out randomly to sew 7 strips. You start with the 6 lightest sets and after using 3, add 3 more sets. It was fun, and I like the effect I got when I reversed every other strip before sewing it all together. I used 57 fabrics and am thinking of doing another one.

Great colors and texture - have you considered using the same technique to make a fiber-art woven basket to sit on the table next to it?
