Quilt With Us

Our quilt group often gets material donated.  It just shows up in our closet at the church.  This week as we were going through the closet, 5yds of Brocade was sitting there. 

It is a deep midnight blue with gold leaves.  As we would not use it in our quilting I got to bring it home. Now I just need to decide what to make.  It would make a perfect fancy jacket, but I do not wear them anymore or make them.  Pillows?  Seems like a waste.

Any ideas for simple project?  Maybe something we could sell?

Donate to a local theater for costumes.

You got FIVE YARDS?  That will make a load of e-reader covers!  You need to find something that uses up more yardage.  Pillow covers sound good, so do the tote bags.

Sounds gorgeous! You could just keep it as a pet. :0 Okay, just kidding.

I think e-reader covers would sell well.

I was drooling over the description and a wee bit jealous!  What a great donation.  Janet's tote suggestion is a great idea - how about e-reader covers or tablet cases/totes?   I sure hope you come up with something that is doable.  I'd love to see a picture of the fabric.

Sounds lovely Dawn.  That is a lot of brocade too!  Any leftovers could be made in to tote bags or purses too.  Does your group ever do a fundraiser?  If so, tote bags would probably sell very well.

My first thought too Pam, I thought maybe outdoor cushions? They have water proof spray in case you forgot to bring them in. Curious to see what you do make Dawn. Good luck!
