I am at a quandary as to what to do with old clothes to make a quilt. My aunt passed away and my cousin gave me a some clothes to work with. I have a few problems...
1: My aunt ripped out all the labels. so I'm guessing here, as to what type of fabric I've got. (Some I'm sure are 100% cotton... others are a mystery as to the percentage of cotton in them.)
2: Most of them are all light colors... lots of white and pale colors.
3: I don't believe I have enough to make a decent size lap quilt, so I was thinking about doing a bed runner.
(any one have any suggestions on a pattern?)
4: Since I have a mess of mixed content fabrics... I was thinking I should be doing these on a foundation block. ???
5: I need a very simple pattern that will go together quickly.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I know that you talented quilters here well point me in the right direction.
Thank you for your help with this project I've gotten myself into.
