    Lightbulb sharonsewsalot new to group

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the group. Love to sew, i would like to sew industrial fabrics into a quilt for making bags or picnic style blankets. Most of the fabrics I have for this - uses a industrial sewing machine, but I would like to see what I can do with the industrial fabrics with a quilt style look. I have lots of fabric and want to be more creative with it. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks sharon

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Some people piece simple quilt patterns with upholstery fabrics. We also have a few people who made bags and totes with them.
