With each project I make, I like this book more and more!
I tried to make something a bit different from my usual bright/eclectic taste.
I had fun trying to find ways to use this Square Dance panel from Anna Maria Horner. I’ve never sewn with voile before. It is amazingly soft!
I used the center of the large square for the lining of the kit and part of a small square for the pincushion.
After cutting the large panel for the lining , I had 2 scallop strips left over. I was excited that I was able to work them as the binding.
I didn’t have a stamp to use for the exterior, so I cut the selvedge to use as a ‘ribbon’ trim.
I used a temporary adhesive to hold them in place and then stitched a band from the panel fabric to cover the raw edges in the center.
I used a pretty dusty blue Zuwa text print for the ties.
It turned out so feminine and sweet, I just love it.
A quick project that would make a lovely gift!
Thanks for sharing in the process with me, Lindsey
