Stash-busting continues………….


As another top is completed. Posted here. The binding will use up what few pieces of the fabric that are left and lighten up the last dark border a bit. And that equals success! The top is 56”x 56”…….quite a nice size, I think!! This afternoon, I’ll piece the binding and hang it up to join the other top waiting for sandwiching.

The pin-wheels will need a tack to hold in place (at least the larger ones will) and, maybe, a button in the center of each one….it will depend on the ultimate destination of this one. If for a child (great grand??), then no buttons allowed!!!!

Til next time…………………………..
