I often wonder why......(Day 8 post)

Quilters take perfectly good pieces of fabric and cut them up only to sew them back together again.   This is what I have been doing over the last couple of days.  Firstly all the fabric was cut into strips then sewn together.   This was done twice.

Next I took my ruler and used the 60 degree angle to cut it firstly one way then the other.  This was done on both pieces.   That gave me 4 pieces which were mixed around to match the angle.

These were then sewn back together. I took another piece of fabric and cut it on the bias to make the binding.

And this is what I ended up with.

I chose autumnal colour toning for my leaf potholders but they would look good in any colourway.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
