remember these? I got some scraps and sewed them
I made two such strips using them.
I ironed them flat and trimmed them up
just to a rectangle shape
I was not fussy with size or making them the same.
they are close enough
I then took one and made a cut from top right to bottom left corner
the next one I cut from top left to bottom right corner
opposite of the first one
as you can see I didnt plan or the colors wouldnt have been the same at the top
I took one of each "kind" and sewed them together
to make this shape
I found a backing fabric
this was an old panel I have been wanting to use
it has Fall colors so I think it will work
I roughly cut a leaf shape out of the sewn pieces
cut a back and batting the same shape
I quilted the leaf shape with veins
here is the back.
Now this potholder is ready for binding and a loop
I love it for making something out of nothing
dont you just LOVE scraps????
