Simple sewing

This is going to be a candle rug. I need to start on the binding. I thought I would make this out of some small scraps that were hanging around on the cutting table. This is a flip and sew method. I had backing and batting layered together and I placed the fabric in layers and pressed as I sewed them. It is a crazy block method and It is machine quilted to the backing and batting without quilting lines showing on the top. 

My step daughter-in-law sells candles and I thought she might appreciate some of these in her home. I will make some more maybe seasonal ones for her. I can use some more also. Small pieces can make useful items when you make small quilts. Chris
