Once again, the plan was to get up early and start sewing clothes.  But this project was in the way.  Used up all the HST I had and sewed this panel together.  This section is 25" x 35".    I am going to set this aside for a while and let the next sections evolve from this and the scrap bins.

Next on the agenda is to see if I can make a dress out of this fabric.  My mom brought it from her many travels.  I believe it is from Burma / Myanmar.  My understanding is that this would be a traditional sarong worn both both men and women, gathered around the waist.  It  is 42" wide, 68" long.  I may need to do some creative piecing so I can make a knee-length sun dress that takes advantage of the border-print embroidery.
