Vintage fabric- Japanese style!

     One of the women in my painting class, Patty, was taking a vacation to Japan. She asked if I wanted anything and I jokingly said "fabric". Today at class, Patty had a bundle of vintage fabric scraps to give me. I opened it up at home and am amazed at all the kinds of fabrics and looks. I think I have to wash it all (some silks) somehow. Then, I am thinking how to make this into an improv type quilt so I don't have to cut the fabric much. Kind a Gee's Bend thing. I think I will have to sew the fabric to a backing, because some of the fabric is real thin. I am not a handsewer, so that idea won't work for me. Hmm.
All kinds of things here
