Show and Tell Monday, 9/29/30

My computer fizzled yesterday morning and nothing I did could revive my internet connection. After an hour or so with the techie, I'm finally up and running. Such a rainy and dreary weekend, I decided to attempt a new technique. Now, understand, I am not a quilter. I had seen a really nice book cover a while ago and thought I would attempt one. Step one was cut your fabric into various sized strips - deep breath. Okay, I did it. Now sew one strip at a time onto a base of batting. So, there I was zipping right along when I took a look at this new (?) fabric I was creating. I am here to tell you--just because you like a bunch of fabrics, doesn't mean they are going to look good together. I'm not exactly sure what it is I have created, a new dust cloth maybe. I've got it, a moving blanket for a doll house. So here for Show and Tell is one of my great ideas run amok! They can't all be brilliant.

Hey, now I don't feel so alone. Susan is right though, they would make sweet lavender sachets.

Too funny Pat. I like Susan idea. Every project can be saved or replanned.

Pat, I don't see a thing wrong with your creation, and we all have to start somewhere and learn somehow! This would be great as a little altered quilt creation...use it as a foundation, add embroidery and applique and a little beading and maybe some sequins and trim....you'll be surprised at the beauty that leaps out! xoxoxo Andie

Some good ideas Pat. Also you could use it as a scented hot pad and fill with some of your goodie scents. I love the look myself.

Huh? It looks fine to me! I like both the hotpad and the sachet ideas (if you decide to ditch the quilt thing).

Hi Pat! I think it came out lovely. I like Susan's idea. You are using imagination and creativity. You go girl!

Hi Pat!

Susan has a great idea. Definitely do sachets filled with lavender. Love the smell of lavender! You made me laugh about the two little mini lip pillows! No need to confess! If anything I am so glad you liked them and that your granddaughters will enjoy them.
You are one sweet pinkie! Have a great week!

Susan has a great idea. You could also fill with lavender and use it as a potholder.

Have a nice week!

Ithink it would make a sweet dream pillow. Fill with battting and put a lavender pocket on it. draem Pillows give you sweeet smelling dreams. I think the fabrics look good together. That took a lot of work, a creative new idea is n the way! Lilli

Pat, I think there are some great ideas here. Not all of our projects can be perfect, but you might be able to transform it into something else!
