The beginning of a series?

I recently came across a very old, dusty wash board, and since no one seemed to want it anymore, I claimed it.

I cleaned it off, and decided it would be the perfect frame for a miniature quilt I have been wanting to make.

I found some tiny clothespins at Hobby Lobby, and got busy fusing and cutting a little wardrobe of laundry. I love making quilts using scraps, and this entire quilt (only 8" x 8") was made using scraps...

I now have acquired several more washboards, so I am gathering fabrics and ideas for additional miniature quilts, to be framed by the wash boards. It gives me a chance to practice thread painting, and most of all, to have fun!

I took it to my Monday night group last night, and it got a few oohs and aahs...
