The creative road I mean-----
Finally I can show you something that I have done or should I say I am doing.
Another of my friends owns a patchwork fabric shop and she was saving me these tiny strips of fabric that she had left when trimming up the fat quarters----rather than open the fabric out and cut along the fold to get the 2 fat quarters she would leave the fabric folded and put the ruler along the fold and run the rotary cutter along and trim off the folded piece.
Me being who I am asked her could I have some as I was sure that I could do something with them.
I had thought of knitting them together and some other stupid ideas but I came up with this weaving idea.
The frames were made by my husband from some concrete re-enforcment and he painted them purple and put some plastic tubing on the ends and I was away.
I wrapped thread up and down over the bars to give me the warp threads and then I selected colours to represent sky -hills-grass and flowers and wove them in between the warp threads.
I ended up with a scene similar to the one I have here--
Then I would I put iron on interfacing on the back to keep it all together and then put a backing and border around it and add a bit of machine stitching to finish it off ending up with a little quilt.
This is what the frame looked like with the warp threads.
