I have been asked to make a black quilt. I have this black material on my longarm just now. Can you see the white lint from white batting on the first bar? I started to put the white batting on and changed my mind. I can imagine these white threads popping through the back with the stitches and marring the solid black. Consequently, I ordered some black batting and I am waiting for its delivery, allegedly tomorrow, which means it won’t be started before Christmas.
In the meantime, I thought I’d make a protective pocket for my new laptop.
I use my play quilted muslin for the cushion and the accent fabric. I line the quilted fabric, sew it together, reverse it, and then make the envelope. As it is mine, I did not include ribbon or velcro to keep the envelope closed as I find the decorative stitch 1/4 of an inch or so from the top is sufficient to keep it closed.
So you can see the quilted lining when opened.
And here’s the finished product. It’s perfect. Now I need to make something for my DSLR…
I learned something new today because I had no idea there was black batting. I hope you post a photo when you get going on the project. Like your sleeve and I really like your laptop because it looks just like mine. 🙂
I love my new laptop. It’s so light! It replaced my 8 year old Mac lap that had just reached its limit.
I think black batting is just the beginning: that quilt will always collect hairs, threads and bits of fluff” I love the laptop cover.
I’m sure you are right, but that won’t be my problem!
