At our autumn fair last weekend I was asked to make a warm, cosy throw ready for the cold winter nights ahead here in the Pyrenees.
|So I started off with a roll of 80% cotton, 20% wool in warm colours and a pretty floral design|
|teamed it with a co-ordinating fabric and cut both into 4" strips.|
|They were sewn together then chopped up to make squares|
|which were then pieced in checkerboard fashion with a border added around all sides and then layered with wadding and backing.|
|Quilted on a domestic machine following the lines of the squares, trimmed and a 2" binding finished by hand et voila, another warm and cosy throw ready for the cold winter nights.|
|Another order was for a personalised apron.|
|I've quilted the pocket to make it sturdy and durable. The thread is a heavy jeans thread which makes a very strong mark and I've used Jacquard fabric paint for the name.|
