My quilt is paper pieced patterns and I used all recyclable fabrics. The main fabric I used was from old ties that had been worn by my husband when he was a working man! I had saved MANY of his ties for years....some very colorful...very wide (think '70s). So after taking the ties apart...body and linings...I had quite a bit of fabric. I also used scraps left over from previous sewings...bridemaids' dresses, mother of the bride dress, Halloween costumes, formals, etc. It was really very fun to put it all together!

My next project is a swap quilt. I have a new badge on my blog, "Another Little Quilt Swap 6". You can click on it and it will take you to a very interesting blog belonging to the host of the swap.
