Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Scraps Before and After

It’s gotten so deep in my sewing room I have got to stop and clean up.  Of course I’ve been saying that for about a month now.  I really meant it this time, but you know how that goes. A while back I was given a box of “scraps”. Some of it is truly scraps, then there are parts and pieces of project and some yardage.  While working on the cat quilt, I pulled some of the brights from the box. I’m not sure if any of it made it into the quilt. As I was gathering it up trying to figure out what to do with it, I thought I could sew it together and have a small baby quilt. Actually, I was eyeing the black print for Carolina Chain and when I realized just how much there was, that’s when I thought “baby quilt”.

This is what I came up with.


I cut a strip off of the large piece which I pulled out of another box and started chopping and sewing. There’s not enough of the green and black to do the backing, nor is there enough of the black for a binding (Yea! I can use it in my Carolina Chain). I found the light blue and plan to use it for the binding and also waiting to be put up was the purple which I will use for the backing. If I don’t get lazy, I may find that I have enough batting to do a Frankenbatt. The little quilt measures 33 inches square.

Of course the sewing room STILL needs to be cleaned up. But what is new.
