That tradition is seeing a current resurgence as more and more individuals turn to recycling instead of filling land fills. The Free-Cycle group often aids in this process and provides a free source in the way of clothes, sheets and blankets. These “finds” are morphed into their bare fabrics, added to our own recycled clothes, either too small, too large or just not loved anymore.
The picture here is an example of one such recycled project. Bright, cheery and warm, Jaci’s appliquéd quilt is made from wool suits, cut up and felted in the washer and dryer. I hope her lovely project will inspire someone else to try their hand at some scrap quilting. Grab your old jeans, suits and other clothes and go green with them! Sew a quilt!
