Sewing up Strips

I actually attempted some patchworking today - it's not something that comes easily to me, but this technique was so easy that I had to give it a go! I spent an hour or so going through the fabric stashes and cut 6cm strips of pink/green/white/cream coloured fabrics. Was fun to watch the piece come together.

Full Length of fabric - 70cm x 110cm

Now, big decision is what to do with it! I could add sashing to the sides and make it into a lap quilt, it could become a dolly rug, a tote bag, an apron, a bathmat, pillow covers, possibilities are endless!

Actually, thinking on that ... it would be perfect as an apron, well used and loved. Plus, it's all the colours I like so will make me smile as I wear it! Would have to fully line it so that the seams stay inside ... but that's very do-able ... hmmm ... food for thought!

I love it, have you ever made a tie skirt (sewing ties together). I would love one. WHat you have done here is what we used to do with our ribbons from Shows. (horses and cattle.) We made rugs for them.for the special occasions.
