Leftovers


This is a quilt I started as a leader/ender and ended up being the main project. I finished the top last July, had it quilted this January, finally got the binding on and sewn a few days ago!! Woo-hoo! I'm calling it Leftovers because it pretty much has all kinds of scraps in it, thrown together, and looks fantastic, imho.


Measure twice, cut once........will someone remind me of this please??!

  11. Triple four patch is such a great quilt block. I bet you have just inspired a lot of quilters to start digging thru their scraps. What size is your smallest four patch in this quilt?

    Happy Stitching,
    Cheri

  28. I will remind you if you remind me to check twice what side of the quilt row I am sewing to the next. Had to rip out a whole row yesterday.

    I am always attracted to quilts like your new finish. I like those rows of light forming a pattern throughout the quilt. A very nice finish.

  29. I love it. Great way to use up those scraps.

    And yeah, measure twice, cut once. I can't tell you how many times I've done something like that!!

  30. Lori your quilt is beautiful.

  31. Your Leftovers is scrumptious! Scrap quilts rule!
    We can all remind each other to measure twice and cut once...problem is with me - I have even measured 3-4 times and still cut wrong...the eyes are definitely growing older.
    Have a good weekend.

  32. Your quilt is beautiful! Somewhere, hidden in a drawer, I have pieces cut for a quilt I'd forgotten about until I saw your post. So one of my projects today is to find it and start using it for leaders and enders (thread bears to me) and maybe, just maybe, I'll get it sewn. You did a great job!!!

  35. Beautiful! Love the colors.

  36. LOVE the binding 'trick'! 8-( Been there done that. Maybe we could come up with some snazzy variation to the binding mishap to make it look "on purpose" .. a frog, or clever button, or ??? LOL Hope you have a bit of binding fabric leftover.

  40. My FAVORITE kind of quilt!

    Bummer about the too short binding - I hate it when that happens!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love scrappy quilts, and yours is so beautiful. I especially like the diagonal lines created by the 4-patch blocks. I noticed it also looks very nice next to your header.
