HOW TO MAKE AN AMERICAN QUILT
QUICK TIP: Joe also inherited a quilt at some point (ironically Winona was one of his clients once upon a time), but it's a bit more tattered than mine. The patterns and colors are gorgeous, but it's just too worn to display, so I thought (and I'd best ask him before I do this) about cutting it into smaller pieces and mounting them on canvases. Michaels Arts and Crap stores sell blank canvases for as little as $6.99 (for an 8"x10"), so why not cut pieces to fit, apply with fabric glue and create beautiful art in a kids room, family room or hallway with 6-8 canvases?
