I came across these bookmarks buried in my batting closet. Batting closet, you say? Yes, I have a very narrow closet in the hall bathroom that I keep all sorts of extra batting samples in. I was cutting batting for an upcoming machine quilting workshop and these were hiding in there. Maybe because it was so soft and cozy, huh?

These were part of a class I taught (I think). They were pieced on paper and then backed with a single piece of fabric, all stitched together with a button hole stitch on the edges.

And a postcard I made over 10 years ago. Again, batiks with a feather stitch and some glitzy gold ricrac! Aren't scraps fun when they're used this way?
