I was all geared up to make a longtime-listed Sidekick Tote; but not as geared up in the hardware department as I had hoped to be; so I cut all my pieces and fused my interfacing and then put everything aside.
My #xplusalong quilt was practically screaming for attention!
So I sashed the xplus panel, taking the quilt top to a now 60" square, made the binding and pieced the backing. I have been consciously trying to just use stash fabrics, so I had to spend a bit of time trying to work out how to use the yardage offcuts and some Kona Ash and Coal, and love the simplicity of what I came up with.
I then had the unbridled joy of trying to frankenstein a large enough piece of wadding. It did it, eventually. So please, let us remember that in quilting, it is definitely what's on the outside that counts!
