Something From Nothing



Just for fun! The theme of this series is a collection of decorator fabric samples that were given to me by a local designer who was cleaning out her workroom. The challenge I assigned myself is:

In each little quilt, I must use all of the colorways of a particular fabric. I can combine related one-of-a-kind fabrics. I can add other "found object" fabrics and trims. I must always make the design of the quilt relate somehow to the design of the fabric print or prints.

This project is not complete. Check back for more fun little quilts!
