Remember these scraps, our leftovers from cutting the FQs for the Pineapple Blossom quilt? Let's see how far I stretched them.
I threw away the pile of ends on the left. I'm not THAT crazy. :D
Then I used the gold/yellow as leaders and enders, til it was sewn into one strip.
I dunno what I'm gonna do with it, hopefully it'll find it's way into a crumb or string quilt.
Then with all the 2" squares, I pieced them into 4 strips.
The ended up being the first border on my Bonus HST quilt.
Now at the first picture of this post, on the right side is a bunch of 1.5" strips.
That ended up being the second round of borders. At this point, the top now measures 30x37. Small baby size. I measured because I want to see how much it'll shrink after quilting, then washing. :)
And just a wee bit of leftovers. One 2" block and 2 short 1.5" strips.
They can go into crumb and string quilts. :)
Here's the quilt all pinned up.
I used high loft batting this time - it was the perfect size from another quilt's leftover batting.
The batting gives the quilt a lot of puff!
And for the first time ever, I'm trying my hand at Continuous Curves. Some of them are so wonky that I can't do anything but laugh at them. But from a dark distance, they look good! ;)
Can I blame all this quilting energy on my age? It kinda feels like I turned 25 and WHAM! a ton of quilts are coming out of me. Can you believe I haven't even own the Connecting Threads country fabric for a whole week yet? 2 quilts already!
Hmm. I don't think you want to hear that I also put together another top last night with some hand dyes and black... :D
