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…
