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?  :)


  1. How very nice! I must say your photos are looking lovely as well! Great job!

  2. Super cute and fun. Kenzie loves both of them and thinks they are both hers. You can't even tell that it was made from left overs, I never would have known if you hadn't told me :)

  3. Yay for leftovers! That's why they call them "scraps"--to take away the guilt. This turned out really cute! I like the contrasts too. Really pretty colors--good job!!
