Certain decades are associated with the frugal use of fabric.
I am hopelessly drawn to outrageous colours and patterns. So I had to share with you some photos from a recent event I attended. The fabrics are from the 1930’s but they have quality that still holds artistic value today, many years later.
American Depression Era Quilts were made in the most desperate of times when money was short, textiles were expensive and frugality was the name of the game.
Although it was a time money was short, colour was king….. anytime there is a depression, colour is turned up a notch or two!
I am so thrilled to have the latest copy of Reloved Magazine, which includes a feature on the work of Jessie Chorley.
