No Words Necessary

I believe this fabric might have been from the 80s.  I had a whole bolt of it. Needless to say the rest of the bolt went in the trash.
 One thing for sure I will really give black fabric a good test before I use any of it again.
I think I will see if I can quilt NO WORDS and just use it as a wall hanging once in a while.  With a big label on the back to never ever wash it.
I wouldn't bother but this is the first Challenge I ever entered and my first Liberated Quilt and I hate to lose it.

Before you quilt it, perhaps there is someone out there who can help you (more than I can) to add a layer of stabilizing fabric between the flimsy and the batting (I've read about this being done with antique quilts that need support for their fragile fibers).

I also totally agree with the big label on the back idea ...

GREAT flimsy ... good luck!

Oh no, say it isn't so---never throw away fabric, give it to Bonnie for donation quilts, Goodwill, or gift the scraps to your adoring fans :) One quilters scraps is another quilters treasure.
Thanks for sharing.

Oops, I spoke to soon & didn't bother to read the previous entry---rotten fabric goes in the trash!
Sorry!! HOw dare I question your motives for tossing fabric. My humble apologies.

Try to use black batting. Good luck with the quilting. I like your words.
