Back in the early 1990’s, I participated in a workshop where we marbled fabric. It was SO much fun!!
Now, back then I didn’t have a lot of money for quilting so some of the fabric was not great quality…..it was what I could afford at the time!!
Regardless, I came away with an amazing array of fabrics.
Then, 15 years later, one of my friends moved and gifted me with all of HER marbled fabrics too.
The bottom line is that I have a box FULL of marbled fabrics that are at least 30 years old….
IT IS TIME TO USE THEM!!!
There is a good range of fabrics and colors……
….and I needed a design that could handle all of those differences!!
Several months ago I posted a photo of a wall from the “Tower of London”….
…and in my “Marbles Must Go” delirium, I decided to go with this idea for the marbled fabrics.
I started out by cutting my marbled fabrics into 5-1/2-inch strips and adding a 1-inch navy strip to one side……
I then sub-cut the strips into 3-inch bricks and I quickly had a good set to play with…..
This is what I am thinking……
Make three (or more) panels of these pieces with wide blue borders in between.
I am hoping that the navy fabric will help to tame all of the different patterns and colors from the marbled fabrics.
