Project Description

What are you most proud of? Turned out nicer than I had envisioned. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep a look-out for pretty bandanas at yard sales and such--many are unused. I bought this along with a stack of others at an estate sale (family was selling odds and ends they didn't want). I assumed the bandanas (all brand new and neatly folded) had been potlatch presentations. I had no plan for them when I bought them. Our small quilt club cut up the other bandanas and made a small back of the couch quilt which we donated to the local senior center for a fund raiser dedicated to the lady that had owned the bandanas. She was a respected Alaskan Native elder.

What you will need

  • A pretty bandana
  • cotton fabrics
  • batting
  • sewing supplies
