Felting Vintage Textiles - Mary Lachman's technique in Quilting Arts Magazine - August/September 2013

I am thrilled to announce the publication of my technique to recycle vintage crocheted doilies and create new fabric pieces.  It is in the August/September 2013 issue. If you are not already a subscriber, you can order a copy online today or find one at your nearest fabric shop or bookseller!

Below is a photo of a piece that was not selected for the publication, but this is the "before" the felting process with the doily sandwiched between a base of wool roving and decorative roving laid out on top.

And this photo shows the same piece after it has been felted and quilted. The new piece can stand on its own, be mounted on canvas or fabric,  or be incorporated into another quilt. The possibilities are endless. Try it today.  If you have any questions, please send me a comment.
