It goes with everything requiring a teal color, but enough is enough! During my shopping trip to The Hen House the other day, Elise pointed me to a pattern to make letters with. This is what I ended up making with the remaining piece that had surfaced.
|Ben's Wall Hanging|
The original purchase of this horrid fabric was used for Ben's first quilt many years ago. It was a much loved Irish Chain used in many fashions typical boys use their quilts for: A fort, a cape, to drag the dogs around with, to cuddle on the couch, for sleepovers, and for love.
After making the letters I found I had enough left over to use for backing, and with two inches to spare, the binding as well.
The fabric will always be with us since I have incorporated it into so many of my scrap quilts, but at least when I go searching for something teal in my small or large cuts, this should no longer be an option.
