I am finished with the IWMC quilt and am extremely pleased with the binding. Need to add the hanging sleeve tonight while watching TV, and awaiting a stand so I can take detailed pictures.
This morning I headed to the sewing room to reorganize the mess that's been accumulating while I was working on other things. I decided to take some time and do something with these panels. They were originally planned to be the 3 front panels of a skirt which you can read about here. After getting this far, I lost momentum. Today, I couldn't bear to just throw them out, so instead they became a 24" x 28" doll blanket. I even had the binding in the stash.
From this project, I learned that William Morris motifs could be wonderful quilting, if I were to use a light background.
I found a skirt like my inspiration photo on sale for $10, so no need to finish this one.
The other side is a batik re-purposed from curtains from one of my daughter's bedroom from the grade school era.
Next up: sewing patches on biker vests, and prepping the last 4 Benjamin Biggs applique blocks that I haven't started.
