Leftovers

Keeping leftovers can be a bonus or an onus, as all quilters know. I've had this kitty print for about 7-8 years since making a disappearing 9 patch for a co-worker. 
Yellow, red and green solids from this project as well as a baby quilt for a nephew have also hung around. Since making my Scattered Squares quilt I've become enamored of L-shaped sashing and had quickly drawn up a layout for the kitty fabric. I finally finished the 12 blocks in just a few minutes yesterday. But they weren't enough to make a very big quilt. 
Remembering more solids in the stash--and JUST enough yellow to sash my planned additions, I got those cut and sewn last night. 
Here's a small charity quilt that I'll add some borders to and have ready to quilt at our philanthropy sew-in this weekend. I like it!

Very nice looking quilt. You seem to be good at coming up with ways to use what you have. Way to go.

Clever layout, thrifty use of fabric on hand; win-win!

What a great way to use up older stash. It's bright and fun.

Very cute! Both fabric and quilt. Don't you just love making quick simple quilts like that every once in while. I think they are very motivating.

I bought this same kitty fabric many, many years ago with the thought of using it as a table cloth for my kitchen farmhouse table. Never got it done, and still have the fabric. Your quilt is very cute, and the layout is very inspiring so I may get a small quilt from it. I only have a yard, so it won't go very far.
