There was another quilt I saw at the Northwest Quilting Expo yesterday that I'm still thinking about. It's this one, Family Genes, made by Jeanne Halapoff from discarded denim, mostly her in-laws'. The ultimate in reusing.
JUDY MARTIN : Rough couching, over raveled weft threads, un-separated floss, and narrow strips of denim. It evokes Starry Night. "The threads and fabrics are familiar things used in an unfamiliar way. What is usually used to make a neat seam or a mended pocket, is used here in a messy and raveled manner."
