My favourite charity shop is the end of a chain.....donated goods are offered at the shops in the more affluent areas, moved to another area and down the chain to this shop where everything is 25p, 50, or £1and so I got the curtaining that I needed for £1 a pair.
Now real quilt makers look away NOW.....I made no attempt to piece this together....tack or pin....or bond....I just grabbed the front and the back piece and stitched. The top and bottom row is the wrong way round....after spotting the 2nd and 3rd were different to the first I simply made the 4th to match the first.... It's not intended to be a heirloom piece just something of the moment which satisfies my needs at this moment in time. Just something I could throw on the lawn and picnic on, read, sun bathe...etc
Here it is hanging on the line in my "bus shelter" letting the breeze blow away the fluffy bits from snipping the seams.
and the other side.....I made it 4 panels by 3 and cost about £5. Each panel is a large cushion size. It will be thrown over a settee in a room where the walls are painted a similar green and a dusky plum colour and two walls magnolia. Its going to be MY den.
