a gift for Sandy

My art quilt group had a challenge for December.  We had saved bits and pieces that would normally be thrown away, put them in a bag, and distributed them to the group.  No one knew whose bag they got.  Sandy only had a small amount of blue. I had an idea, to make a weaving aka Jude Hill, and attach a doily in the middle.  I wove the blue strips on a piece of fabric, put a piece of batting behind it, and sewed invisibly down the sides of the strips.  Then I attached the doily, and another piece of blue fabric (from a Goodwill shirt) on the back, and folded the shirt to the front.  Hope she likes it!
