How has your March been? Have you been scrappy happy?
This month, beside my Butterfly Medallion quilt which was made largely with scraps, I tackled a scrappy project that I have had in my sights for a LONG time.
I have a little IKEA ironing board that sits on my sewing desk beside my machine. I love it, it's so handy when I'm piecing. But it is stained and horrible and ugly now, after a few years pressing and fusing interfacing. So it needed to be prettified. And I had the perfect plan: a return to basic, simple, patchwork squares. Let the fabric do the talking.
I used the method in Randi's tutorial - it was easy to adapt it for my little board. I used some cord to do a drawstring closure which was very straightforward, and I added a layer of cotton batting underneath it so now it is lovely and padded and just about perfect. I love how nice it looks on my desk.
