last year i thought i had a brilliant idea when i started making these quilted scarves. i was prepping for a craft show and was making several of every item at once, although i never fully finished a 'prototype scarf' before starting to make them. i did have a sample with everything completed except for the finishing. when i got to the final stage, the binding, i found the scarf suddenly looked like an oddly-shaped potholder (i actually use one as such - i'll post that later). totally not scarf-y.

so a few months later, i remembered my intention to make a window-seat-blanket/pad so that i could snuggle into my spacious window frame and read. i sewed a bunch of the abandoned "scarves" together, and ta da.



it is a bit bumpy, unfinished, and will have to sit face-down, but at least it makes my nook more nook-y!

Great idea! I've been wanting to make a little something snuggly for my window seat too. I really like the idea of a quilted pad.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!
