‘Charm quilts’ are made of repeating shapes in which no two fabric patches are the same. The fabrics are often culled from worn out clothing, and may include swatches from friends and family.

I created my charm quilt with a similar process of recycling and repurposing, but from my old drawings, prints and paintings.
