Surprising that my mess turned into this…

I was not sure that I had a whole lot of hope for this piece.   I thought it might be pretty, 20171001_195117_resized (1) but getting it laid out so the iron on bias tape would cover properly was quite a trick.  It took me more time to lay it out than to sew and bind.

I am pretty sure I had the iron on binding tape for about 15 years.  surprisingly it still worked and stuck when I ironed it on.  It would have looked better with gold metallic but I did not have any.  Seems like there is not much of this stuff around.  Only found a couple of colors at joann.com.  Oddly one of them was gold.  Still looks nice with the yellow.

If Mom was here, I would have finished this into a table topper and taken it to her.  She loved Poinsettia’s.  Each year around the holidays I would always take her the biggest one I could find.  This is going to hang on my front door and every time I look at it, I will think of her.

I might make a table topper for myself.  I would have to use different colors because I would have to use up the bias tape that I have.  Maybe Blue or Pink.  Need to see what kind of fabric I can find that would work.  We shall see.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. I’m not surprised at all! You are much more talented than you often give yourself credit for being. This is a beautiful piece, whatever you make it into.

  2. What a wonderful finish! Even more special because if the memory. I used to get my mom a pointsettia too. Haven’t done it for a while now. I buy her a huge geranium for her garden now instead. She just loves to garden.
