Patchwork Art

I am starting to create a wall full of these small little fabric covered boards - a scrap from every piece of fabric I use. Someday I will hang these all together on a wall in Sofia's room (if she lets me!) for a fabric memory of French General. To make your own scrap boards, start with a small piece of cardboard, I used 8x5 boards.  Cover the front of the board with your fabric scrap and tack down on the back with fabric glue.  Attach a small ribbon loop on the back, also with glue - this will allow you to hang the board on the wall.  When you have at least a dozen or so boards, hang on the wall using small nails.  Be sure to mount them close together and it will create a patchwork panel.
