my neighbor tossed a giant bag of used painting clothes on the sidewalk last summer. i brought the whole bag up here and boxed it up for "later." I loved the textures of the paint. but had no sewing skills and did not want to mess up the fabric.
this is a blog about how I used the heavy sweaters, and sweat-material as batting.
here are a few pics...
with enough stitching - or tight enough channeled quilting those inside pieces are not going anywhere.
i sometimes use scraps as batting also - i dont worry about making a flat inside because i like lumpy quilts. i dont try to have a perfect coverage either. i just put a piece in and quilt - put another piece in and quilt.
dont forget to take out zippers and buttons. dont put in things that will shrink in the dryer.
here is the top folded down - ready to quilt.
