So is the finished product supposed to be a quilt? I'm assuming that because of the title & the specifics around the backing, binding, etc. but just want to be sure.

Nancy said...

You are doing such a fantastic job picking ideas for these challenges and the items made are great!

Question; are photos considered recycled since they had a previous life in my photo album?

Kathleen said...

Great challenge... my closets are getting cleaned out... I'm finding things I forgot I had!

Diane said...

Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt. All the other things like bags, dolls, skirts, etc, are OK for this challenge, just like all the others. What I was trying to say is that your entire project needs to be made from recycled items. The only allowed exceptions are thread (a really tough re-use any day) and batting (or whatever you use for filler).

Yes, I would consider your photos to be recycled.

Have fun! Can't wait to see what you all come up with.
