Sometimes they have handles, as in the photo above, Sometimes they have a folded over top edge. they can be tall or short, and rounded or square,.
I decided to use some orphan blocks I had made some time ago.
I had 4 blocks that finished at about 8 inches.
I just sewed them into a row, and quilted it, using soft and stable as the batting. Then I joined them into a tube.
I made a bottom square the same size, and sewed it to the bottom edge of the blocks,
To make a stiffer bottom, I covered a piece of timtex and placed it in the bottom
When I quilted the blocks, I used linen as the backing fabric, and cut it wider at the top edge. That way I just rolled it down over the front edge of the blocks to self-bind the top edge.
Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos of the process when I was sewing it,
As usual, making it has made me think of what I'll do for the next one,
As a sidenote. I am working my way through my stack of orphan blocks, and abandoned projects, which feels pretty good.
