Macro Monday

This is a small starburst quilt, I saw at the Temecula Outdoor Quilt Show, on Saturday. What was suprising about it the half square triangles were not pieced, for these the top fabric was folded in half, and placed on top of the bottom piece. The quilt was very pretty, but left me scratching my head at the extra fabric used.  Good fabric is expensive; I hate to see waste.  Below is my macro, looking inside one of the many pockets created, using this folding method.




Be sure to visit Lisa, to see who else played today.

  3. Hiya Jan,

    They used them to hide small items?
    Like a cloth safe?
    Or and advent calender?
    Just thinking I would use it to stuff things in that I didn't know what to do with, like buttons or hair grips :-)

  11. I do understand your head scratching but I do like the ease of it. Sometimes you have scraps you just want all used up, no? :) Very pretty!
