Velvet Patchwork

Something made out of nothing really. This velvet patchwork is made from the hanging sample of Designers Guild velvets that was being thrown away to make way for a new one. There was a 1sqm piece of the pink velvet and over 30 15cm squares of all the other shades.

I originally organised the squares in shade order and it looked a bit dull. So colours are sort of grouped together but shaken up.

The large pink piece became the borders and it is backed in fleece that I bought from Abakans in Manchester.

Did this on the sewing machine and finished it off by hand when turned inside out.
