I'm a little bit silly about saving fabric scraps. I save just about every little bit of usable fabric. Usable for me can be as little as 1/2 inch. Does that move me from the silly to the compulsive category? May be so. So be it.
|Extreme Scrapping Table Runner - Batiks|
leftover from the Tsunami Quilt
|The center squares are done by topstitching|
(with a decorative stitch)
two little scrappy bits together.
I do not use a foundation, just slightly
overlap the pieces, topstitch, press and trim.
It is a technique I developed when I decided
I needed to use up all the little bits leftover
from the New York Beauty Christmas quilt.
|I thought this would be a great project to try|
quilting with Perle Cotton.
And quilting with my
grandmother's crochet thread ... why not?
|The back ... and all the hand quilting.|
|The quilting was all done free form,|
experimenting with the different threads.
