I have been making things for my new online store, Necessities or Not, and one of the most popular items are bags I made from a failed quilt.
I have now used up the entire quilt and thought to myself, "Why not make another quilt like the failed one?" Great idea self. So I started out yesterday dyeing a piece of cotton 45" square purple. It seemed very dark but ended up not as dark as I wanted it but what the heck, this is supposed to be a failure.
I made the phases of the moon just like the other quilt then sandwiched it up with warm and natural (a bad idea) and put on a white backing. I pinned it and started free motioning leaves and had the entire quilt made by dinner time. I actually can't believe I did it all in a day!

Love the bag. I'm considering cutting up some quilts that I made a long time ago, before I got into art quilts.ReplyDelete
Awesome! Gee... maybe I need to go back into my clumps of unfinished quilted stuff and see what I can do with them! At least I could clear them out of the ever-growing pile of unused stuff, huh? Really love your colors on the finished bag!ReplyDelete
