When I made Kitchen Sink last year (Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket Surprises), I cut a lot of extra pieces since I was considering making it larger than the pattern required. In the end, I simply added a wider border. With the leftovers, a 9 paddle wheel layout was my choice and, serendipitously, I had just the right amount of leftover cut print pieces and exactly enough triangles to fit the setting I had decided on. Gotta love that!
This is about 24 inches square--no borders on this one. I've got the backing there and already picked out prints from the 2.5" strip bin for a scrappy binding.
Leftover orange and blue squares from a Quilts for Kids project, a few bright Aussie prints from a 6" precut pack I bought on my trip to Queensland, some leftover flannel, and a small cuddle quilt is born. I will sell this at the crafter's shoppe.
These prints are from a jelly roll I bought at Tuesday Morning for a song--I'll get at least three more cuddle quilts out of it. This setting idea was from a Quilts and More magazine from a few years ago. Quick and easy. Enjoying myself immensely, and ideas are teeming for more scrappy fun with leftovers!
