  • The Leftovers Quilt

    For some reason I had a bunch of fabric left over from a baby quilt I made for a coworker. I was going to tuck it into my stash but then decided to challenge myself and see if I could make something cute with it...no additional fabric purchases allowed. I think I succeeded. And it's the prefect baby quilt size - 40x40. I almost think I like it better than the original quilt that created the leftovers. Kind of hard to tell though because the original quilt isn't quite done yet - need to applique some elephants which I think will raise the cuteness factor.

    The main fabric line used in this quilt is Special Delivery by Studio 8 with a few other random prints thrown in. No specific pattern for the quilt itself although I was inspired by the Basket of Turnovers « Moda Bake Shop quilt pattern by Moda because I had a ton of HSTs but also did not want to match a bunch of seams on a quilt I don't know yet what I'm going to do with. Might hang on to it for the next coworker that gets pregnant.

    Many of my quilts start with that crazy thought - Hmm, what shall do with these scraps leftover from the quilt I just finished?
    Good job!!!

      Good job on the quilt. If you had not said anything, we would have thought you planned this quilt - not used leftover scraps.

                Love it! Those "leftovers" cost you the same $ per yard as the parts used for the other quilt.
