We were invited to a friend's cottage for an overnight stay in July. Another mutual friend also joined us. We had a fabulous time catching up and enjoying the beautiful weather, swimming, boating, playing Scrabble, etc. I had to test a few sewing machines and wanted an easy project so cut out some 8" squares of scrap fabric and a square of batting and covered them with selvages quilt as you go style. That worked slick. I dug out leftover pieces of binding from other projects and chose selvages to match those colours. After stitching the selvages onto the batting base, I added a backing and stitched the bindings on. I joined a couple of friends one evening and hand stitched the bindings down while they worked on their projects. I got seven of the eight finished and the last one was stitched at the cottage :-).
|Found some fun leftover binding strips in my bin :-)|
|I started with a strip in the middle on the diagonal ones and added selvages to each corner|
|Half of them were done in straight lines...the navy blue one was not finished yet.|
