Quilt

This is a small quilt about 20 by 20 inches. The green "print" is actually fabric I made by putting scraps and threads between layers of water soluble fabrics and then machine stitching heavily to make sure it was all secure and wouldn't fall apart when I cut it up.

I wanted to see if I could use this type of fabric for piecing. IT WORKS! Then to use it, I made a 4 patch and bordered it. The machine quilting follows and extends the piecing lines.

You might be out a little time and supplies when you experiment, but even if it doesn't work, you learn. If it does work, you have a new technique to use.
