Handmade Monday is here again and this week I actually made it. Phew.
Finally this is almost finished, I have one edge left to bind. It is specifically for my daughter as a throw for her huge settee in the conservatory which is choccy brown leather. I made it quilt and go which means, to the uninitiated, each square is made complete with wadding and backing before attaching to the main article. It is 50% machine sewn and 50% hand sewn. All the little coloured squares are just left overs from my stash. In fact, I started it by sewing the small squares together as an experiment and it grew from there.
This is just one of a good number of lovely blogs to meander through for Handmade Monday so why not pop along to 1stuniquegifts/blog and sus the others out. You will definately enjoy the experience.
