    Let's talk about not wasting "stuff".

    I was given a box of fabric, and it was all already ironed onto fusible web. Thought a long while on what to do with it. Didn't want to toss it, can't abide wasting stuff. I finally cut muslin squares, and squares from the fused fabric. Then I ironed those onto the muslin. Sewed it together with vertical sashing. My club will help me knot it, and I will bind it. Then it will be donated to someone who needs it. Very bright, for sure.

    I should have added I used my sewing machine and did a blanket stitch around the print squares.
