I've been making fabric from creams and (mostly) black fabrics. The cream crumbs became hen blocks–combs and eyes and wing/feather detail to be added later. I'm thinking the black chunks may work for a background for some folk art style appliqué.
I've pulled out a vintage gold damask tablecloth, purchased at an antique fair in Texas last year to add to the mix. I still don't have a firm vision for the design–at this point, I'm still playing with parts.
