I didn’t get a chance to get pictures of the quilt taken. I can tell you that it’s finished….well the quilt is finished. I didn’t clean up the leftovers and put the project box away yet. I can’t tell you happy I am to have this one DONE!!! I’m hoping to get some pictures soon.
After this got done I didn’t pull a new UFO yet. Instead I pulled someone else’s…. People have sent me scraps and orphan blocks and I’ve started building them up into doll quilts. These first ones must have been left overs from a baby quilt. The center fabric must have been a panel…I just added scrap to enlarge it.
Here was #2 of the same fabric.
I was out of the scraps by the time I got to the third one so I pulled some other donated fabric.
This big bow was an orphan block. I added a white border and then the outer red border. I think it’s cute…don’t you? They are simple and nothing classy but I do enjoy making something quick and easy with leftovers.
I have the blocks all in a pile. Some nights I come upstairs and only have 15 minutes to sew before bedtime. I grab one of these and sew. I love it.
The goal is to get them to size somewhere from 18″ to 24″. It’s so fun digging through all the blocks and scraps. Making something out of nothing is my favorite thing to do.
See you next week!! Well you might want to be back sooner than that. I think I’ll have time to photograph this and write a blog post by Friday. I’ll who it off then.
