What, you may ask, am I doing inside on this most ridiculously perfect Summer day?
I couldn't keep my fingers off my little tea towel project, that's what!

I used some Ink & Spindle fabric I had plenty of for the backing.
I decided not to quilt, but just to topstitch the two layers of fabric.
I'm so pleased about that, the weight and thickness is perfect.

I found this sensational set of instructions on how to bind quilts (and look at those corners!).

I did find a wee little hole in one piece, now covered with an unusually placed label.

And here it is in it's new home.
I love it, and I think I understand now why they say patchworking is addictive....!

Necessity is the mother of invention (aka a creative cover-up!). Just lovely. Now you've given me an idea...
