...scraps of fabric, ephemera, ribbon, beads, buttons, and all kinds of other little bits. On of my favorite ways to use up some of these 'treasures' is to make a collage quilt.
I used drop cloth for the base, batting saved from packaging of some item that arrived at our house, and cut small squares of fabric as the background for the collected bits. And sticks, and wire, and mini clothespins to hold the mini quilt.
This one uses blue and purple as the primary colors. You can see it is an assortment of things that come together.
Buttons, paper, lace, cheese cloth, and creativity come together.
Pretty much anything can get incorporated into these quilts.
It takes a bit of time to come up with the right combinations, but it is great fun to sort through my things to see what I can discover.
And here is another one, done in a different color. This one hangs in my bedroom.
Again, a broad assortment of things... tissue paper, lace, printed card stock, and scrapbook embellishments were some of the items used here.
What things would you use on yours?
This is a fun project that can be quiet personal, or simply made to use up odds and ends collected over time,
I would love to see yours, if you decide to make on of these!
