this one is for flip

The plan was to have a another project to keep me occupied, however, the charcoal light denim that I have used is a little too heavy for hand quilting (the way I would have liked to) so I have already put this one together and machine quilted it.  My sister gave me the denim years ago and I've finally put it to good use.  I'm thinking of a black & off white striped binding, but I could change my mind once I'm in a fabric shop.  As this one will be finished quite soon looks like I'm going to have to start on something else...

Before quilting I cut some holes in the top, put some backing behind and did some stitching around them with sashiko thread.  The edges were left raw so they could fray nicely after a couple of washes.
