Several months ago I posted a wall hanging to Laura. But unfortunately it has yet to reach her. We think it might be lost up a mountain in Austria or has possibly been eaten by a goat or something :o( so I decided to make Laura a jewellery roll (also useful for keeping a variety of other things in) like the ones I made as Christmas gifts. And I though it was going to be my Friday Finish this week.
Here it is.
The inside. I like the way the zip tops fit snug against the binding.
The inside of one of the top pockets.
And the fugly quilt backing showing where I forgot to put in a layer of fabric as the large pocket lining! I only noticed this after I’d sewn on the binding. I don’t think I can bear to take the whole thing apart and to be honest it would probably be quicker to make a new one from scratch. So I’m wondering if I could manage to turn it inside out and hand sew a matching lining in.
What is certain is this is not finished after all.
Luckily I do have another finish.
I made a cushion using my red + block, which I made last year as part of M-R’s Colour my World Challenge at Quilt Matters.

oh dear, its not looking good for Laura! having said that the jewellery roll looks fab
It looks really nice, even if there is an little error. I'm so sorry the other one was lost. That's happened to me a few times in international post and it is so frustrating!
I hate it when I make mistakes like that. My classic one is getting the quilt backing caught in the quilting and having to rip out all the stitches.
I hate when I come to the end of a project only to realize I made a mistake! Especially one that would require so much unsewing to fix :/ I bet you can figure a way to salvage it, though! It's so pretty, it would be a shame for it to go unused!

Way cute! Love the red/white cushion!
I think it's lovely still and I bet she would want it as is!

The cushion is beautiful! The jewellery roll is incredible! I love the sunflower dresden, so pretty! The fugly is kind of hilarious and I think Laura would love it as it is! :)
