    Waste from having a quilt quilted.

    I had one of my quilts quilted and a lot of the bright orangey yellow backing was returned to me. Since it was long pieces over 6" wide and 100 inches long I put it in "My pieces good enough for borders" drawer. I had made a tumbler quilt out of some tumbler my guild had and some more I precut and added to my projects to do. It ended up wider than it was long so I was looking for a good way to lengthen it and get it out of the way. I opened that drawer to look for border fabric and saw that yellow. I think it worked out well. The brown was also in that drawer and I have more of the yellow sewn up for the binding. I have it posted above.
    sigpic my goal is to be as good a person as my dogs already think I am

    What a great way to use that yellow and brown. The yellow makes those tumblers pop too!

    What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish


      I've got some leftover backing from a quilt too and kept it because it was wide and so long. I haven't found a use for it yet, but I keep waiting. So glad you had that yellow. It looks great!

      About this Group

      The only rule for this group is to challenge yourself to create projects entirely from your collected stash and post pictures and project ideas here to spark creativity amongst the group.

      We all enjoy shopping for patterns and fabrics for new projects and in our excitement for the new and interesting older projects and finds get forgotten. Sometimes, we find single fabulous prints in fat quarters, pre-cuts or yardage that don't fit any specific plan. Make a plan for them!

      There is no timeline on this group, it is just a place other quilters can come looking for fun ideas that don't require an order or a trip to the store
