I finished this smallish (13" x 31") piece today. It is not for the green line show—too small. It is not for anything. Yes, the bottom is not square and the top is slightly narrower than the bottom. (intentional) My friends will be sure that aliens have taken over my brain, this is so unlike what I usually do. The bottom, dark fabric is a piece of plummy purple Jeff Gutcheon glazed cotton that I have been hoarding for about 15 years. I wish you could really see how delicious it is.
The most shocking part of all is that it has beads (gasp!) sewn on it—a lot of them. Beads usually don't appeal to me. What can I say. The green fabric said, "sew some beads on me—then do a bunch of hand stitching around them." I obey the alien voices.
