Machine cover.

Hi friends!
Right after i blogged yesterday i saw a couple of blogger were making machine covers.
I needed to use up some scraps bad.  I had been needing a new cover for my big machine for a while.
So i made me one!
These are the sides.
Then i went looking for some scrap big enough to go across the top.
Sewed them to it and  looked for scrap battening and backing.and quilted them together.
This was my bag of 4 inch squares after i made the front and back.
It's a little lighter.
Trimmed it down to the size i wanted it and found some more scrap fabric for the sides.
Added some binding and now i have a new cover for my big brother 1500 from scraps.
I need to think of about a billion other things to make to even make a dint!
I very seldom use a pattern , i might see a picture that i like and make something similar.
This one should last a while , it's good and thick so dust can't get into it and it's high enough so i don't have to do more than put down my thread pole on top of my machine.
I quilted it with wavy lines.
Let me see what i can get into today!
Have a good one.
Quilt Happy

Good job. I need to do that. Help cut down some of the dust bunnies which start to infiltrate my machines.
