Ok, so it has been awhile since I’ve done one of these. I think I might be up to a record number of quilts on the go. So, today I will just show a little of one that I was working on today, instead of writing a post that is 20 pages long…
I have a lot of fabric. Most of it I bought online, and some of it I picked up from the sale or clearance sections of websites. Bad idea. Most of it when it came was pretty ugly, and I had no idea what I was going to do with it. Note to future self: Only buy fabric you have seen in person, or is from a designer you really like.
Anyway, I thought of giving it away, but then I thought that was just too wasteful. I had to think of something to do with it, even if it was just using it for foundations for string quilts. However, awhile back I came across faux chenille quilts, and I thought this was the perfect use for all that fabric. Only problem is that I wanted to make bigger quilts (one for each of my three kids, with matching floor pillows) and the fabrics were all different sizes, some only a half yard. This is my first attempt, which there were definitely some problems with. It is about 33″ square.
I am still experimenting with the best way to do this, but I will for sure post a tutorial on it once I do because there were some little details that would have made my life easier.
But the texture is nothing short of amazing. Can’t wait to work out the kinks and have three of these, throw sized & backed with minky floating around my house!
