But I was pleased to find these little scarp pieces. Even more, I enjoyed making them into something useful. They are our new coasters!
Silk fabric. But coasters you ask? Yup. I know I’m taking a risk here. They were small pieces… and I didn’t want to throw them back in the box (to get lost … again!). Just about right for coasters, maybe even a tad bit on the small size. Because they are stabilized with a fused stabilizer (as silk fabric ravels terribly if you don’t), I’m hoping they will hold up in the wash. Normally I wouldn’t put them in the wash, but since there wasn’t much time invested in them, I think this will be interesting to see. I’ll throw them in a hoisery bag to help protect them. And then… I will know for sure!
Last year, February 1, 2011, I published the quilt which these pieces are the scraps leftovers from a tablerunner I titled: “Pick Up Stix” & you can see that post by clicking here. And that tablerunner was made from the scraps from a silk quilt I free motion quilted for the Bernina store last year! Three times a charm! Love it!
Just quick picture how the triage looks on our coffee table, as I ‘staged’ it for ya’ll.
EnJoy the weekeend! Three days for me, as Monday is a federal holiday! YAY YAY YAY!
