The second technique I have been playing with is weaving fabric without a foundation, ie just like weaving threads. The previous cloth weaving I’ve done has been with the strips/warp attached to a piece of fabric. With this method the warp strips were wrapped around a small box, the weft then being woven and basted as I went. It is a very quick way of creating blocks for a quilt, or patches for mending clothes etc. They also feel like samplers to me, a quick and easy way to experiment with colour combinations etc before embarking on larger pieces. All in all a great way to recycle and reuse all those little scraps with lots of potential.
