When I visited my friend Pink in the south, she gave me this great quilted piece. I love the print and the reverse side is polka dots. How could I not love it?
At first, I was planning to unquilt it and use the fabric for ... something. As I'm cleaning my sewing room, I thought it would make a perfect mat for the bench my father built. It was a little too long, hence the small piece in the photo.
I bound it with the darkest brown I have, no batik here but it will do. As I sit here sewing the binding by hand, I'm thinking this would be a good place for Raven to take a nap while I sew on long winter evenings.
|It will look better once the binding is sewn down.|
Thanks again, Pink. We never know what great things lie in our scraps until it all comes together.
(Now what to do with the smaller piece? I so want to take it apart, lol.)
