Links to IMPROVEZATIONAL FABRIC MAKING :

I am planning a series of  “MAKE FABRIC” techniques blogs.   I have listed all the links to blogs that have instructions on how to ” MAKE your own FABRIC” that I found doing a Google search and asking my TWILTER friends for links to the blogs they use.  I will add more links as I find them. 

Making your own fabric is technique used in the past and is being used now in modern quilts.  ” made fabric” is often cut into shapes and used in a block.  Sometimes the made fabric is used to make an entire quilt.  I plan to post all the technique I have learned over the years.   Often the blocks look similar when finished but there are several different techniuqes that can be used to make the fabric.  EACH technique has advanages and disadvantages, I will try and reveiw each technique.

Bonnie has several free patterns on her web page using self -made fabric.  I have included links to the ones I actually used to make blocks or entire quilts from.

 

Christa Watson:

Christa highlighted a quilt on her web page using a pattern from her book, MACHINE QULTING WITH STYLE,  highlighting the use of self -made fabric cut into a specific shape.
