We recently had a moth invasion in DH's closet. Several suits ended up with enough damage that he can't wear them. I usually pass along old clothes to the thrift store but since these are unwearable I'd like to use them for a quilt. Any suggestions on how I should handle the fabric? Will pre-washing take care of shrinkage and make it washable in the future? Also, I'm thinking this might be a quilt that would do better tied. As for the pattern, I'm thinking of something simple, maybe just alternating squares. Or since I'll have odd shapes from lapels, etc. maybe a crazy quilt using some of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine.
I'm having a hard time getting started with this cause I hesitate to cut up these expensive suits. But they really aren't good for anything else.
Any suggestions would be appreciated and pictures if you have any.
Thanks in advance.
