Token Quilting

Have been saving these old NY subway tokens for years!  I just can't bear to throw things out.  Probably the main reason I took up quilting in the first place.  I really try to recycle everything, and I am always so happy when I can re-purpose in a creative way.   I've been newly inspired by my visit to the new Punk exhibit at the Met museum where designers had made beautiful clothing with discarded trash bags, staples, ball chains, zippers, smashed bottle caps, and old clothing of course!  I am going to quilt with metal today...

  1. Wish I could pop over and see the exhibit. Sounds like a good one! Will look forward to seeing your metal quilt.
