Here’s what’s going on with more of the Christmas scraps. Its a little dark and busy for my taste, but I’m choosing to regard it as rich and cosy for the winter time. What do you think?
The plaid centers completely used up a fabric remnant I’ve had for ages. It’s truly beautiful, but I really don’t know what it was sold for, or why I bought it. I was seduced by the gold threads, I guess. It’s very thin (voile?), and when washed became a wrinkled mess, which ironed into a very crooked plaid. After years of looking at it, I finally found the patience to cut into it. I thought about using scissors, but I needed every inch of it. After pinning it together every six inches, I was able to rotary cut it into mostly straight six inch squares. Stabilized by the fabric frames, I think it will work okay in this quilt.
So what’s on your design wall? I’m linking up with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
