Fabric Salad

Green goodness for quilters and sewists

Jeans redeemed at International Quilt Festival

“My religion is quilts,” proclaims Estonian quilter Marja Matiisen. “Textiles sewn in quilts,” she says, “have made it to heaven.”

For countless pairs of cast off jeans, Marja’s a savior. Her quilt “Green Blue Planet Under Siege” hung at the International Quilt Festival in Houston last week, proving that salvaged fabric can be just as beautiful as new.
