I am not a quilter, but once in a while I go to a quilt shop with a friend who is a quilter. Of course I want these independent shops to stay in business, and I did like the look of these fabrics, but here we are at least a year later, and I still haven't done anything with them. If I don't sew them up now, it will be at least another year before I look at them again—because of the seasonal nature of the prints.
I found a free project sheet at Fabric Depot; here's the cover:
I plan to make a reversible table runner and a small (approximately 12-in. square) table topper. But I don't need any more placemats.
Do you have any ideas or suggestions or links to easy—remember easy, please—for using up this fabric? I'd like to make some gifts that people would really like and use. Maybe a set of coasters from the smaller print? Maybe an easy apron? Any other ideas?
Bonus points / extra credit for any ideas that use these fabrics in something I could wear without looking like I'm wearing a quilt.
I'm making myself use this fabric to burn it into my brain to stop buying fabrics for quilting projects! Maybe it's not my responsibility to keep quilt shops in business.
Thanks for any and all suggestions. I will post updates. Achi dachi!
Blessings and peace...
