Leftovers With My Morning Coffee
Color me Quilt Happy! It's a grand Monday morning, and I've spent the last couple of hours enjoying leftovers with my morning cup o'joe!
Yesterday, I was enjoying Jan's latest post over at What A Load of Scrap and admiring her little doll quilt and thought "Hey! I've got a bunch of leftover pieces I could do this with!"
So last night...needing an outlet for my grief over the Cowboys loss (*SIIIIGH*), I headed down to bury my sorrows in some quilt scraps. I had these leftovers...
rejects, if you will...somewhat imperfect little half square triangle segments. I added some leftover strips from my recent strippy nine patch....
such a simple quilt! This morning I got up, filled my cup, and headed downstairs to dig thru batting scraps. Found one large enough, and whipped this thru the Bernina with some simple quilting lines.
I dug thru leftover binding strips....combined two for a scrappy binding, and in no time, I had the handwork of the binding done too!
What addicting little quilts these could be! And all from leftovers!
Yep...I'm Quilt Happy this morning. It's going to be a great Monday! Enjoy yours!
