I've had these leftover pieces hanging on my wall catching my eye each time I pass the sewing room doorway. I have little real need for a quilt this size, and I can hear the ghost of my dear departed husband saying, "what good is a quilt that is that small?" I love the man, but that question did get on my nerves.
|Measures approximately 35" by 43".|
What GOOD it is.......is getting me into the sewing room for a day's worth of mindless, peaceful sewing, cutting and pressing without any worry over WHAT FOR. I needed just that.
And it's pretty, don't you think? I get a kick out of hanging something different on my living room quilt rack every couple of months, but many of them, even though small, are big enough to atleast be a baby or lap quilt, so I didn't put hanging sleeves on them. This means that I have to pin them over the hanging rod and that's a nuisance.
So I've decided that when I am in need of a quick 'quilting fix', I can just whip up something specifically for hanging there ! Sounds fun and opens up the possibility for all kinds of things that I wouldn't take the time to make if having to fit a bed.
Maybe I'll even hand-quilt this one, just to have lap-work.
I hope you're enjoying some 'stay in and stay happily occupied' time !
