I have become a DEPOSITORY for leftovers.
If friends make something.... they think I am the
LUCKY winner for the leftover pieces!
I try to say NO....
But it doesn't always work.
These flannel strips came in a little bag
and were almost all leftovers cut the WIDTH of the fabric.
Very timely leftover acquisition...
since last night my husband thought I needed some DOWN time...
and suggested I go SEW!!!
He knows me well.
All I had to do was sew these strips together!
They're all a little bit different widths.
(I didn't even TRIM them!)
I got these strips together BEFORE they took ROOT in my STASH!!!
Sometimes if you add the NEW scraps to the OLD....
they begin settling in and NOT finding their way OUT of the stash!!!
I call it "taking ROOT"!
The plaid backing was in my stash!
So the UP side to getting leftovers is....
you end up using some of your stash to FILL in and complete the quilt!!
The wavy quilted lines were SO EASY!!
I need to use them more often.
So that's it friends.
The SIMPLEST Scrappy quilt arrangement
with gifted LEFTOVERS.
ADD them together you get....
You also get..
a GREAT charity quilt that will comfort and bring joy to others!
This quilt measures about 40"x60"
I used MOST of the leftovers given to me.
I used plaid from my stash
I was also able to find some leftover binding strips
to make a scrappy binding!!!
