What I did with my leftovers

Okay.  I have a whole list of things I need to post on my blog and get off my to-do list (and out of my head).  I've been procrastinating even starting this but I have no idea why...it's not like it takes that long to make a blog post.  I have the pictures all ready to go and everything.  Anyway...after I got done with the 3-D quilt, it occurred to me that I couldn't very well give a blanket to the baby without giving one to big sister.  Also, I seem to have an aversion to scraps.  It's like somewhere in the back of my mind I know they're sitting there waiting for me to sew them in to something creative and magnificent.  Sometimes, I just throw them away so I don't have to worry about it any more.  So before the binding was even on the 3-D quilt, I was trying to cook up how to use the leftovers it created.  And here's what I came up with.

I wish I would have had enough fabric left to do something cool on the corners, but when it was all said and done, all I had left was a little piece of black.  How's that for cutting it close?  :)
