My first completed Christmas gift ~ yay!!
I'd already purchased the towels
when Amanda Jean posted her tutorial,
and was trying to work out in my mind how, exactly, to attach the patchwork strip.
As it turns out,
because my towels had definitive 'markings' where I placed my patchwork,
I didn't actually use her tute;
I decided to just press and glue baste, then topstitch.
I folded the ends in 1/4 inch, then wrapped them around the edges of the towel,
so there is just the tiniest splash of color on the backside of the towel.
For extra security,
I ran a line of stitching in the ditch
down the center of the patchwork strip.
While I am not the biggest fan of small pieces,
I do love using scraps
because they are fun reminders of the projects they are originally from
(How many projects would you guess are represented in these towels?)
Linking up with Amanda, once again :-)
(the answer is 15)
Fifteen projects represented in one towel!
That's a whole lotta love :-)
Girls Easter dresses, circa, 2009!
and the only time I used an entire line (and only that line) in a quilt.
