Thready Thursday…

Well I finally pulled out the sewing machine
again yesterday and look what I made...


 used four of the fat quarters to cut the squares

 attached batting to the back after I sewed the strips
together then I sewed diagonally both ways thru all
the squares to give it a "quilted" look and
also to make the batting more secure
 used the 5th fat quarter for the side panels
they are 8 x 10 each
 made a little band to go around the bottom
I felt it gave it a more "finished" look
I am very pleased with it!

Used this tutorial to make the cover.

Thanks for taking a peek,
See ya next time!
