Henry Ate The Quilt
Our snow barely materialized. We got maybe an inch after they were forecasting 12" at one point. It still messed up the morning with icy roads. So with a whole day ahead of me I was not in much of a sewing mood.
I made this pot holder a few years ago and it looks it. I liked the size 5 x 9. It's the kind that you bend in half to use.
I am not sure how this happened..
Remember this cool fabric? It is more like a decorator weight. It will hold up better than regular cotton.
I have been holding on to these fabrics waiting for something to do with them.
I opted not to bind them as I know what they will look like in a few years. I have 5 more cut out, ready to sew.
My nod to Mad Men, love this back. In a way they kind of look like mini pads????
Okay, now about Henry......He is my son Dylan's dog. Apparently when he was a puppy he snacked on this quilt. It is very Thimbleberries, flannel, circa 1990's. I remember making this for him when he lived in West Chester with some buddies. To save money they kept the heat real low. If we went over we went in the spring and still kept our coats on ( :
In no way shape or form did I have any of that fabric leftover! So rather than try to match it I let the flaw shine for all to see. It is in the washing machine now to make sure it held up. Yes or no? What do you think? Would this bug you? would you have to match it up better?
