...instead my eye fell on the scrap-quilted top I have also been fiddling with for about a month, and I realised that was a lot closer to finished and REALLY needed backing, quilting and binding so I could draw a line under it. I dug out a piece of yellow polyester fleece which came from a scrap bin somewhere - goodness knows what I was going to do with it - and realised it was just the right size to back my scrappy top, and I could dispense with batting entirely! Serendipity.
So here is my scrappy blanket. It's only wee, just big enough for a cot blanket or to go on a buggy.
Perhaps I should try a properly "bloggy" photo of it:
Oooh, yes. Now, having used up all those scraps (maybe a metre or so at most) I had clearly cleared a space for more fabric, right?
Just as well, since I ordered the entirety of Denyse Schmidt's new range, Florence, from the Village Haberdashery in their pre-order sale the other day. Hee hee! Now where am I going to put it...
Meet me back here next Wednesday and I'll try to have my big exciting Denyse Schmidt quilt finished. Wish me luck!
