Betty's challenge - Unconventional Materials - has me thinking about conventional in general. It seems like quilts evolved from the unconventional - sewing old shirts and feedbags and scrap materials into a functional quilt.

All sorts of clothing items seem to be recycled into quilts - some historically, like denim, some more contemporary like neckties
|from a Sharee design|
and t-shirts - most of which seem pretty conventional now, but probably were outside the box at one time…..

Selvages show up. You can recycle all sorts of things…..I'm trying to think of something "new" to recycle.
