I found this at a fabulous second hand sale...
Funny thing is, I'm not even sure what it is. It is definitely made of seriously cool polyester squares, from previously loved clothing... but it's not a quilt. Well, at least, it's not a quilt that you would put on a bed... or a lap... or anything else I could think of. Maybe it once warmed the back of a couch? It is the only thing I can think of that would require such a long, skinny, quilt.
Whatever it once was, I know what it will be next!! And then the cycle will be complete... or will it?! Just think - all those clothes, from so many people - were then turned into a quilt... and will now be turned again - upcycled, if you will, re-used. :)
I'm not telling what I'm making with it, but I do know where you'll be able to see my recycling efforts:
Craft o copia - The White Pine, downtown Nampa. There will be a group of artists each night, I'll be there Friday evening. But feel free to stop by each night, and start your Christmas shopping before it gets crazy!

Well, hello, where are you boys off to, looking so dapper, and trim?
Whoa, one at a time please - I can't listen to all of you at once.
Much better, thanks.
Oh, you're a new line of Zips? by Revive you say?
Well, you're awfully good-looking, and reasonably priced I'm sure.
Wait!! Where are you going, when will I see you again?
Oh, so I WILL see you again. On Saturday, from 9am-4pm at Idaho Arts Charter School Holiday Bazaar!
Be there, or be square, this is NOT going to be your grandma's bazaar.
