A Totally Useless Tableful

It's our last New Moon of 2014! Have you enjoyed posting photos of your rubbish this year? I know I have! I spent the first half of the year cross stitching and collected a small jar full.

The 2nd half of the year was spent learning how to quilt. I swear it has completely taken over my crafty life. I haven't done any cross stitching since our last TUSAL meeting. I've been too busy finishing my second quilt. So I will show off the ORTs gathered from making it. There is a pile of bits from trimming fabric to make blocks and from squaring blocks. A pile of trimmings after quilting and a tangle of threads from all the sewing. Yes, I am obsessed enough to save them...

A table full of ORTs!

And here is what I created! The quilt is a full/queen size. I also made two queen size pillow shams and two standard pillowcases, plus a small throw pillow. Not too shabby considering I could barely sew when I started this adventure. The bedding is all machine washable and nothing has exposed seams to fray. I'm quite pleased by how nice everything turned out!


We want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your December TUSAL post so we can come visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.
