This week I was really stressing about the challenge. I do not have fabric other than cotton. I do not have lace. I have next to nothing for embroidery floss.
I’ve decided that I need to stretch my horizons a bit more 😉
I also had been pushing to get this finished for a friend that was hospitalized with Covid and being discharged. The last thread was pulled, the binding hand sewn and the quilt delivered before he arrived home.
Normally I make matching pillow slips for my quilts but knew that our friend wouldn’t use them.
Instead I made use of the PQ 12.5 challenge to construct a matching fabric mug rug and played with the stitches on my machine and various coloured thread including a wonderful variegated silk thread I had in my drawer (who knows why?)
The remnants do make me think of feathers still.
It was a quick version of a crazy quilt and I did have fun with my limited resources
My friend was quite amused when he saw it and his quilt is now off the bed and migrated to his couch. His mug rug is being used to keep spills off his coffee table.
All in all; life is good.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. 😊 Carol
