To the other fabric hoarders, I agree, good article. Denise, right there with you. In process project may become table runner or scarf, not yet sure. Table runner seems more appropriate, as some pieces were runners or dyed-orange lace-edged tea napkins (holey sections removed). Thanks Denise for a few more ideas on how to edge the fabric joins. And then there are the pillow covers made from 1960s? vintage curtains I "saved" from an abandoned farm house...
