What is cloth weaving? It is recycling of old cloth and weaving it into new cloth. Jude Hill at Spirit Cloth has taken this concept to a new level by creating story quilts using this technique as her design base. I signed up for her Cloth to Cloth on-line workshop and am having a great time learning her techniques. Below are photos of my first few attempts creating the base layer.
This one is made up of different types of muslin. Don’t you just love the frayed edges?
This one was done with numerous cotton odds and ends. Notice the weave within the weave?
Here is my third weaving, the base is a sample piece of Damask upholstery woven with Moda Marbles quilting cotton. Love the richness of the Moda, it almost looks like velvet.
I’m looking forward to her next lesson. Stay tuned.
Keep it simple!
