Denim scrap quilt by Mia in Norway: "Like most quilters I find it difficult to resist pretty fabrics. A quilts store being like a candy store for a quilter. Yet for some reason I get more pleasure out of 'making something out of nothing'. A bit like 'making a silk purse out of a sow's ear'.In this case the sow's ear being old jeans and shirts, worn out and faded old cushion covers (even a loose cover for a chair), and snippets of tea towels and linen fabrics. Hardly a new fabric in sight."

Movements are all about taking conventional ideas and the status quo and turning it on it’s head with the end result being something better than what you started with.
