Amazing what you find when you clean up.
I've spent the last few days sorting cupboards and moving my things into the new shed - or my new house if you are talking to Miss 6yrs.
Anyway I came across two sample panels I had made over a year ago for Better Homes & Gardens magazine that never ended up being used - long story - but to do with change of colour theme etc, that sort of stuff happens a lot with lifestyle publications......
So I decided to turn them into little baby rugs and get some use out of them!
I did these a little bit like a cushion - sewing the two right sides together and then turning them through the right way.
Doing it this way means no binding and a baggy kind of quilt.
To keep it together I have sewn all around the edge in a 1/4 inch seam & also a bit of stitch in the ditch (which I very rarely if ever do)around the squares.
This particular one is going to a school family that have just had a baby boy & the second one will be kept in the pile ready for the next friends baby.
More treasures coming up over the week!
