From the Japanese word, Mottainai, meaning, "too good to waste", I practice using every scrap left on the cutting table.  This piece is created from vintage cotton and silk,  repurposed from vintage kimonos and futon covers. Many of the textiles I find are decades old, with fascinating stories to tell.  The piece is backed and mounted on a 16" x 16" (x 1" deep), cradled birch panel, ready to hang or put into a floater frame, if you wish.
