Special Collection

I've been collecting what most would say are fabrics that you just wouldn't buy for your stash. I love these strange fabrics such as pebbles, bricks, tree bark, wood panels and so on. So if you're wondering what to do with some of those difficult fabrics, never fear, put them in a string quilt.
Here's a string quilt that I made from some of them. I dressed up the borders with a little applique. This is one of my favorite quilts. It measures roughly 54 inches square.

I love this one! I'd always considered collecting these for landscape quilts but I like them just as much here. And the applique adds the perfect extra touch!

I love the way you've used those. I just bought a few of those types of fabrics - because they make me feel good - but have been struggling to find a way to use them.....you've given me ideas galore.
