I purchased some ticking to re-fit my pillows (the feathers keep "leaking"). I had it on my cutting table and I was looking at how the edges frayed after washing. A thought occurred to me that this would make a great rag quilt ... the fraying is soooo soft and fuzzy and the fabric is so heavy.
I think I'm going to get more in different colors and see if I can make a rag quilt out of it!!
