How to Wrap a Present for a Quilter
Why use paper? It will only end up in the bin.
Just have a quick rummage in your stash, and make sure that if you need to do a seam that the stitches are giant sized so they can be unpicked in a trice.
Stick the present into a cloth envelope, and tie it up with a strip fished out of the sewing room rubbish. The ribbon is the only clue as to what is inside. The brown cottons were oddments bought in Liverpool about 35 years ago. I can just about cope with the roses, but the one on the right is particularly hideous. Yet in the hands of a scrappy quilter, these brown horrors could find their way into something marvellous.
Let's just hope she likes what is inside...
