I'm not sure there's such a thing as too much fabric. Art quilters, especially, have a need--yes, need--to keep even small scraps because you never know when your quilt or fabric collage is going to require a specific color, pattern, or texture. Sometimes, though, the scraps of fabric can start to take over. That's when I go looking for projects and techniques that will use up a pile of scraps in a hurry.
Fortunately, with the breadth of fiber-related publications under the Interweave umbrella, I don't have to go far to find a new way to play with fabric. One of the techniques I've been longing to try is weaving, so I asked Handwoven Assistant Editor Pattie Graver to give us an idea of how we art quilters can incorporate weaving into our bag of tricks.
