In the case of most quilts, there is way more fabric available than can be included. It takes tough love to eliminate favored materials that don’t quite complement the mix.
In this case, I eliminated a whole class of materials- all of my t-shirts and workout clothes- rugged basic knits that I wear most days. As my fabric collecting abilities would have it, I had enough of those materials to make the back and front of two quits: One is king size machine pieced and hand quilted by the Amish for my bed and the other a machine pieced and quilted throw.

Love them! Tough love eliminating a whole class of materials. Quite a lesson in creating something beautiful.
