Creating with remnants

Image

I’m sure we’ve mentioned in the past how much we love to recycle, re-use and re-work… All our shops have a basket full of fabric remnants. These remnants are often big enough to make a couple of cushions or even, if you’re lucky enough to hit the jackpot, a curtain! We also have a basket of “extra-fat” quarters of No Chintz and other designer fabric.”Fat quarter” is a patchwork term; fabrics cut down to quarter of a metre pieces. In the case of No Chintz, they’re “extra-fat”, because they’re cut from wider cloth than a traditional patchworking fat quarter. One of our clever customers has used a bundle of our fat quarters to make a beautiful quilt to send to New Zealand. She’s used so many different techniques on this quilt: patchwork, binding, appliqué… what do you think?

We’ve been so inspired that we’ve had a rummage through our Balmain store’s remnant basket and we’ve come up with some schemes for you, including some bindings and trims we found in the basket.

So… next time you’re in the store, don’t forget to check out our “extra-fat” quarters and our remnant bins.

Happy creating!
