|Winter Table Topper|
Since I have started to quilt, I have made a number of quilted and sewn gifts. I think almost everyone I know has something I have made. But this year, I really need to make gifts.
I lost my job at the end of June. So, no income. What I make is going to have to consist of what I have on hand. So that is even a bigger challenge. I don't have the luxury of going on a hunt for the "perfect" fabric.
I have a reasonably large stash, so I do not think it will be too difficult. though, I find that when i am auditioning fabric for a project, there usually seems to be one I have a hard time working in to the project.
Take this winter table topper. I had enough fabrics on hand, in the quantity that I needed. The light was a stumper though. I had originally chosen another fabric, frosty lite blue. Then I made a cutting mistake. So, of to hunt for something else. I didn't like it, but I stuck with it. Now that the piece is done, I am happy with the results.
So, let's hope that the rest of my holiday gift experiments go as well.
