I've officially used up as much of the Rest in Pieces fabric collection as possible this week and have packed the very small amount of leftovers away until next year. I made two placemats and a big potholder to match the big table runner Dad and I made from the collection years ago.
I'm also almost finished with the lap quilt I made from the collection. I should be sewing down the last of the binding today.
If I get that done I'll be ready to sandwich up the fall batik quilt. In a really dumb senior moment I ordered that gold backing fabric on the right last week when I already had the fabric on the left in the box for it. The gold will make a good binding for the quilt and some backing for the fall batik placemats I hope to be making in November from the quilt's leftovers. Ordering it may have been a big mistake-but it works for me.
Those little ghosties are adorable!ReplyDelete
Gold fabric ---------extra? It would work for lots of projects. Always good to have a little extra.
You are not the only one ordering double. I ordered the EXACT same sweater from Old Navy, two days apart on separate orders. Thank goodness they have easy returns!ReplyDelete
I love the lap quilt and the placemats. Very good use of your leftovers! I’m sure you’ll use that gold fabric for lots of things!ReplyDelete
Good call on the extra fabric--great binding! And fabric will never go to waste! lolReplyDelete
I love those ghosts. All of the fabric is wonderful. And...is there really too much fabric? The gold will be used. Your head knew it before you did!ReplyDelete
