Saturday morning, this was a linen skirt. By Saturday afternoon, I'd cut it into squares, backed them with fusible interfacing, and traced three of the designs for my latest embroidery project.
It was probably never a flattering skirt, but I loved it and definitely got my money's worth out that thrift shop purchase. Even after I saw that it had a tiny hole, I kept wearing it because the gathers camouflaged it and I'm sure no one ever looks at the backs of my knees.
Then I decided that it was the perfect fabric for a quilt I wanted to make and out came the scissors! The thought had crossed my mind that this linen would make a good purse. I just needed the right project and pattern...which turned out to be for a quilt.
