For this, my second Fiber Fall I cut up a quilt I had made a few years ago. It had some wonderful fabrics, including some hand dyes, some Dupioni silk and some cotton damask and I loved the quilting on it. But it was out of balance and although it did go into a group show, I never really liked it. I recently unearthed it and thought I might be able to save it by painting the whole thing with latex wall paint, as I have done before, but I still didn't like it. Soooooo, it was perfect for this project, to be cut up into squares.
Here they are layed out on the floor with the pieced/painted sides up. I wish I had taken a picture of the quilt before it was painted and before it was cut up, but I did not.
This is the reverse side or what was the back of the quilt. I like the way the quilting shows.
I had a few squares left over and discovered that they are the perfect size for coasters. I may make some more.
I am working on Fiber Fall #3 and it is very different from these first two, so please come back.
I'm linking up with Off The Wall Friday.
