Decorator Fabric Fun

November 18th, 2008 | Posted by Emma in All | Quilting - (0 Comments)

I have had a drawer of decorator fabric swatches and scraps for many years…but haven’t paid them much attention. Now I need the drawer space for other stuff! I found a project in a BHG publication for a floor cushion and my friend Lisa brought up the idea of sensory quilts for Alzheimer’s patients…so I think I’m going to finally put those scraps to good use!!

They’re kind of ugly, and widely varied, so I hope my projects turn out ok!! Here are some photos of my table full of them! What do you think: a nice scrappy look or a mish mash?? The magazine example is a beautifully coordinated piece, that I know mine will not be, but I think it will be fun!

The floor cushion is from Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection: Fast & Fabulous Quilting Ideas 2008, a compilation from American Patchwork & Quilting, so you may find it there too. More details on the sensory quilts when we get to that project in February.
