Well, I finished the topper for one nightstand. Now I need to quilt it and get it on the nightstand. Two more to go and all of the bedroom furniture will have some protection. So, you can tell this one is not for my side of the bed, although, I love the dog bone fabric, and of course Ohio state. The blue plaid is actually a cotton shirt that got a hole in it. It was one of Kevin’s favorites (and mine), so I decided to cut it up and use it somewhere else. Worked perfectly and was 100% cotton. All though he did look at me like I was some kind of weirdo when I cut the arm off his shirt and started to use it for something other than a rag.
So nearing the completion of this piece, I watched a Jenny Doan video on English Paper Piecing and instead of sewing down the corners, they glued it. Never thought of that and it saved a ton of time. You can see here on the back how I sewed most of them and then started using my glue stick. Looks the same on the front and once it is quilted, who is going to know? Has me considering some other shapes for my “Sit on the couch” projects.
Made some progress on my “One Monthly goal for March”. Need to make more. It is not going to bad. About 20% complete.
