Just a sampling of why I am addicted to thrifting. Oh my. They just don’t make stuff like this anymore! This darling little wall hanging was irresistably whimsical! And at 79 cents well; how could I NOT?
I started this with blue flannel and red sweatshirt fabric. I was moving happily along when I ran out of the blue flannel! I had other flannels, but didn’t want the edges to look out of place, so I cut up a bunch of old jeans and finished up the quilt that way. I used white cotton for the hand tying, but I’m not sure I like it. I may have to learn to machine quilt. What do you think? Does the hand tied look take away or add to in this case?
This has to be my favorite yet! These fabrics were so fun to work with that I’m already dreaming of another.
