How do you feel about repurposing quilts for clothes and accessories? I know opinions can run strong in different directions…
This is what a fashion designer doing just that has to say about it in GQ:
“I have to try to explain this more,” says Emily Bode, “to Instagram, or whatever, because sometimes people say, wait you’re cutting up quilts? That’s kind of sad. But that quilt was going to be in the garbage. The quilters I buy from are happy that the quilts are getting used. You might as well create something that people are going to love.”

Terial Magic is a unique, liquid stabilizer that is revolutionizing the fabric-arts industry. By saturating the fabric threads (unlike spray-on starch), Terial Magic turns fabric into a fray free, paper like material so that it can be manipulated in ways that were previously unavailable to fabric artists.
