Look at me, I have a WIP
I bought three 'sweat rags' when I was in Tokyo with Del two years ago. I thought that I would cut them up and create something but hadn't until this weekend!
"Sweat rag," I hear you ask? The Japanese have all manner of cottons in varying sizes. They are used to keep the sun off, as a kind of handkerchief, folded around goods or even folded up to create a bag. I love them!
I decided to start and love the effect so far. I cut each piece up into various sized strips. These were randomly arranged and sewn together. I am not sure what I am making but it is for me! I guess it is a multi-purpose throw for my couch. I am not sure what to do next. Any hints? How should I quilt it?
So far, I have made up this design and followed no rules I know of. What do you think?
