Fabric is tougher than we give it credit for: reuse it.

Baby quilt by Nadine Flagel. My first son and I made this for my second son. The little rabbit in the lower right block was embroidered for me forty years ago by my aunt. My son chose the metallic fabrics and helped me decide on the new fabrics at Spool of Thread in Vancouver. This quilt is one of two. The other (with zebra fun-fur backing!) belongs to a friend.

Quilt by Nadine Flagel.   My first real quilt was made entirely of scraps. It allowed me to bring together reused materials (each of which told a story) and gave me the opportunity to improvise a solution to the challenging variations in colour, pattern, and texture - in other words, to tell a new story. I learned: while I completed the tedious handstitching pattern I resolved to create better templates.

The reverse of the square quilt by Nadine Flagel shows the hand stitching. In spite of a thimble I had a quilting callous and I wore holes through my fingernails pushing the needle through the fabric.

Detail from large square quilt by Nadine Flagel. The pink velvet is from a dress my mother made for me when I was six. It is incredibly difficult to (a) sew velvet to other fabrics and (b) quilt velvet. Pink Velvet, Square Quilt, Quilting, Fabrics, Sewing, Detail, Instagram Posts, Dresses, Tejidos

Detail of quilt by Nadine Flagel. Fabric can work so much harder than we give it credit for. This Tigger from my son's t-shirt quilt was originally on an infant t-shirt he wore a few times before outgrowing it. I saved it and used it to patch the ripped knee of a pair of his blue pants. Then I turned the pants into shorts and saved this bit for the quilt. Shirt Quilt, Blue Pants, Tigger, Sons, Infant, Patches, Quilting, Detail, Fabric
