The quilt is done and I’m really pleased with the end result. But boy, was it a squeeze!
This is what was left over. I had to use every scrap which was more than two and a half inches wide and after I’d stitched the binding in place, was left with that one piece of the beige border fabric: about six inches.
I’ve put it through the washer and dryer and heaved a sigh of relief that none of that red dye migrated! The Moda fabrics have a lovely soft, aged feel to them and the end result is cosy, cosy, cosy.
It’s clear where I had to use every inch of fabric in the border, though I like it that way too. But having dug deep into the waste bin for every scrap, joining a couple of tiny pieces together to get those last inches, imagine how I felt when I lifted up a book on my worktable and found this.
I shall attach it to the label. Waste not, want not, eh?
