Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I was just given bunch of upholstery fabric samples and have sorted through them for size and colors and "feel". Obviously some of them are destined for the trash -- but, can anyone suggest ways to use up the rest -- ???? I am thinking -- maybe -- placemats? -- totes? -- table runners? cut up for applique pieces??? I am not a big fan of crazy quilts. Any ideas would be welcome -- or if anyone has had an experience with using upholstery fabrics, I would appreciate your input.
Oh MY! I wish you lived near me! I have patterns for easy/quick tote bags and upholstery fabrics would be just FAB for these. They may be too heavy for a quilt but you could also piece them to make lovely covers for chair seats, setees, footstools, place mats (but may not launder well depending on fabric and how used) and to applique on denim jackets, etc with pretty embroidery around the edges - OH girl could I show you what to do with your stash:-) lol lol
