I was going to use the scallop quilt from Curves class for a wall hanging, and made it to match my dining room. Once I was done, I realized that I didn't really know how to quilt it, and it was slightly big for the area I had planned....
So, since it matched the room I do all my sewing in, I made it into a sewing machine cover.
I just laid the top over the machine, and trimmed away the excess. I sewed a backing on it, and turned it, rather than binding. I did add 4 ties, 2 on each side to allow it to hug the machine better.
It looks good, since that machine sits there ALL the time.
