Just playing about ....


Taking a break from making Christmas presents to play around a bit with some patchwork and trying to work out how / if to do some machine quilting on these two pieces before making something out of them.  

Haven't quite decided what to do yet.....

What a presentable ironing board cover! It's even being used to take photos now I'm not so ashamed of its appearance!!

  4. Machine quilting definitely the way to go! Jewellery rolls, or similar, perhaps??

  5. Yes, I think they'd look lovely on a bag! Not sure about the quilting, though - something about too much going on when there are already great patterns, a mix of colours, and the different pieces of material. Too much of a good thing perhaps? Unless VERY simple and geometric?

  6. Those brilliant oranges look great framed by the brown on your ironing board..have you got any left to use with these, they'd make lovely mug rugs with the brown around them!
