I have been making Christmas gifts the past couple of days and don’t want to show because a to-be-recipient may see. For some of the gifts I am using upholstery samples that I was given several years ago and that is how my “oops” happened. The item was almost finished and I noticed a hole.
How did I miss that when cutting it out? I fused fleece to the back and cut from that side so I did not take a good look at the front until too late. The upholstery samples have been super useful. I just need to be more careful. I have not used them all up yet, but I have made a dent. If you are offered some, don’t turn them down.
I also made a dent in my quilting fabric scraps recently. I enjoy free-piecing scraps to “make fabric” which is what I did for the mostly blue squares. ( It's a technique from Victoria Findlay Wolfe.) This quilt top is currently 52” by 64”.
Back to working on Christmas gifts. Are you ready?
