I haven’t really felt much like blogging lately but Kate’s post today has reminded me that, with social interaction being so limited or even non-existent at the moment, blogging seems more relevant than usual. So, I’ll keep on doing it.
Back in early 2015 I made this quilt featuring a handbag design.
This is a design from a book called More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott which aims to help you use the pre-cut fabric packs that look so tempting but you are not quite sure what to do with after buying. Or is that just me?
It has spent most of its life up until recently folded over a bamboo ladder that I use to display quilts that aren’t in use.
I rarely hand quilt – I’m not good enough at it – but as this was a fairly small project I decided I would quilt in ‘big stitch’ fashion and just go round the handbag shapes.
It wasn’t until recently when I decided to use this quilt’s reverse side as a throw to protect my chaise longue from cat claws that I realised what I’d done.
Readers of a sensitive disposition, avert your eyes now.
