Every once in a while she rescues a forgotten quilt top and works some magic on it. Sometimes she finds blocks - sometimes partial tops.... sometimes doozies - but she turns them into snuggles of love.
The latest one was so adorable. It is ALL hand pieced, scissor cut squares , We think it was from remnants of her children's clothing. They are all juvenile fabrics.
|What it looked like on the machine - all the excess the would|
need to be worked it ;-)
Upon inspection, we knew it was going to have some stretch - the fabrics were a combination of cottons, flannels, and a few little stretchy ones in there.
Before any of you ugh ( grin) remember - we were not finishing it for show - we were finishing it for the cuddles and the history.
And Ta da - I worked a lot of lines, a lot of squiggles, and ... got it to lay relatively flat with relatively square edges ;-) The orange squares were left flopping ( or flapping) and my client thought she would straighten that line so it is easy to bind !
PS - Need a quilt finished ( quilted) soon - contact me - I am currently at a two week turnaround .
