The Recycled Challenge

Members of the Not Your Grandmother's Bee recently completed 18 x 18" works the were made of at least 75% recycled materials.

Just Crabby is a piece of a kimono that I dyed in 1992.

I used thickened procion dye to paint the crab.
The batting was purchased at a garage sale and
the back is fabric from the quilt guild free table.

Around the same time in the 90's, I created some batik tshirts.
I saved this batiked circle from one of them.


The circle of batik fish is fused to a piece of muslin from the quilt guild free table
that I dyed. The batting was a small sample of black 80/20 given to me by
Hobbs at a quilt show and the back is a man's dress shirt from a thrift store.

There are 15 quilts on display at the local SCRAP store in Denton for the
month of October. SCRAP is a non-profit creative reuse center in 
downtown Denton, TX that offers inexpensive reused art and 
craft materials, plus office supplies, to the Denton community in their retail store.

The opening reception is tonight from 7-9 p.m.

I can't wait to see the other quilts.
Hope to see you there!
