...I added a strip of black fabric around the hem and used the same idea on the right side of the neckline. I was having real trouble deciding how I would 'close' the top as I thought a brooch would be too much with the tree. A clever friend suggested the black tab which meant I was able to hide the snaps.
So all in all, my $1 Op Shop top turned out pretty well. I even wore it last night....
..... when I went to see the all-sewn-together quilt for Kootoyoo's The Quilt Project.
Image taken from The Quilt ProjectI must admit to a "wow" when I walked into the room and saw the quilt. Even though I had seen many of the beautiful squares, together they even more beautiful. Kirsty has done an amazing job of coordinating this project and of making the squares into a quilt.
I couldn't help myself and even at the risk of being daggy, had to take a photo of my little part of this big project.
If you would like to see more of the quilt and read about all the people who sewed a little bit of their souls into this community project, take a visit to The Quilt Project website.
