Surprise, my sewing machine has a new cover! It was fun to read everyone’s guesses on what I was making with the block. A lot of people guessed a cover but thought it was for a journal, kindle, or iPad. Doesn’t that fabric remind you of rainbow sherbert ice cream?
This started with the 12 leftover blocks from my Zig-zag table topper, I love to use up every last scrap of my batiks. I just added borders until I got it the correct size of my sewing machine by draping it over the machine…….not very technical……….but it worked!
Each side is different if I want a change. I added ties on the side so I can loosely keep it tied and remove it just by lifting it off. This machine gets used mostly for zig-zagging as I use my 1951 Singer for most of my quilting, now it won’t get dusty.
This is definitely a scrap project as I also used scrap pieces of Warm & Natural after I zig-zagged them together and muslin for the backing.
I used a yellow thread on the background and a variegated raspberry thread on the pink/orange batik.
This is the little table topper that gave me the scraps.
I used up the last of my Warm & Natural batting bolt! I bought it in December of 2010, 40 yards of 90-inch batting. I knew I should have bought another bolt when I saw it on sale at Christmas!
I went online and did find a Memorial Day sale so I bought 3 packages of king-size Warm & Natural for 50% off and free shipping. I’ll keep looking for the same deal on a bolt. I was surprised that the king size was actually cheaper than the queen size but Builder Bob compared it to lumber and said you can buy 2 x 10 lumber cheaper than 2 x 8 lumber. I’m not worried about waste as I use all my scraps.
Notice the mess on my shelves………….time to clean up my fabric. First I have to go over to the neighbors and pick fresh peas, then go to town to take my dad’s library books back and go to the grocery store……….
