Here is my first experiment with a pojagi inspired piece. It will be a window cover on a long narrow window by a stairwell in my son's apartment. I am delighted in the way it looks like stained glass. The technique is simply joining pieces with flat-felled seams (like the inside seam on your Levi's). Pojagi, also called bojagi, originates as a Korean art used for wrapping cloths. I found a great tutorial here at The Silly BooDilly blog. The flat-felled seams are her tutorial #2 on the post.
After making 2 quilt tops of mens shirt fabric, I read up on what may be the earliest re-purposed mens shirts into utilitarian quilts... the Japanese Boro quilts. If you get a chance google "Japanese Boro" and look at the images. Cool stuff. Today I did my take from the inspiration.
It measures 14 X 23 inches, has shirt fabric, and bits of kimono fabric. I started with hand stitching the patches upon patches, then machine stitched a grid on top. Click on pic to enlarge.
I was also at the craft fair today. Forgot to take pictures of my area... but I have sold 1 quilt and a few small items. I have learned that at church craft fairs the big sellers are small inexpensive items... not exactly what I have there!
