WIP Handmade Style Floor Pouf

The real WIP today was Thanksgiving preparation... a lot of hard work, but so worth it in the end! I'm working on a floor pouf for a present for Christmas. This project is from the book Handmade Style, which I recommend, it has great projects and clear directions.

First I made this top, which I quilted in three different threads, a dark pink, beige, and gold. They match the cotton + steel fabrics really well.

The pattern doesn't require a pieced bottom but I had on hand a block (Mystery Quilted Pillow pattern from In Color Order) made out of another set of scraps and decided to add some strips from the top fabrics.  This is how it came out:

Now I'm not sure which is the top and which should be the generally wouldn't matter but the sides I have are made with the directional bee fabric...any thoughts?

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  1. They both look great-just make it so that either side can be used as the top!

  2. I really love the fabrics and colors in the top. Its great. But it's an either way quilt - because both sides are great. Hope it's lap-sized or bigger.
