Scrap Project unveiled

Circ needles holder

Ta da! It's circular knitting needle hanging device. :-) Also serves as a useful spot for storing a couple of sets of stitch markers. I haven't got around to hanging it properly with some dowel yet so the bull-dog clips and coathanger will have to do for the moment. This was a nice quick project to make. The top was machine pieced with scraps pieced together in an essentially random fashion. The blue slots for the needles were bias binding left over from C&D's wedding quilt. I pinned them down on top of the patchwork and used the hand-quilting lines to hold them down as well quilt the piece.
And what was that clue/red herring referring to basmati rice all about? Well all good patchwork projects need a serviceable backing fabric.
Rice bag as quilt backing

I scored a heap of these rice bags from S's mum who thought I might be able to use them. This is the first one to actually go into a project.
