Sometimes I get scrap bags, and sometimes I get “leftovers” bags.
Leftovers are pieces of projects–sometimes blocks, sometimes a part of a top, sometimes it is hard to figure out. These leftovers were long strips of smaller strips sewn together, more or less coin style.
They were not all the same width, but there were a number about 3″ wide. I tore out the pieces that didn’t suit, added some 2″ strips of sashing and, ta-dah, a top!
This top is 34″ x 35″, just right for a baby somewhere. I’ll get it quilted after I finish those memory quilts. Getting closer, but moving slower, too many distractions–like leftovers.
I don’t use everything I get, just check my trashcan.
But, sometimes leftovers just need a little help to be something that somebody will love.
