I had some scraps leftover from the Fancy Forest Quilt and thought I would use them up making a second version of Margaret's bag. It;s a bit of a mish mash - I should have liked to include more of the blue solid in the crazy piecing but as it was I used every last scrap.
I also applied facing to a Linus quilt but left it in stages of completion to illustrate the method to to the U3A Monday week.
|Folded strip attached with quarter inch seam to right side of quilt, raw edges together|
|Flipped over and pressed|
|Secured with a one eighth inch away from edge line of stitching|
through all layers of seam allowance
|Folded edge pressed to the wrong side|
|Sewed facing with a serpentine stitch through all layers. On a different quilt I should do this by hand.|
