I have been working to use up leftover pieces and/or blocks from quilts I have made. These leftovers can be put to good use rather than just sitting around taking up space.
Awhile ago I fussy cut (cutting around a specific image on the fabric to show it off in the block) a bunch of Winnie the Pooh Fabric and made a couple of baby quilts from it. I found the remaining six-inch squares and was able to make five simple quilts from them. The first three quilts are made by simply alternating a fussy-cut square with a mottles yellow square. Each row contains five squares and there are six rows in each quilt. I added a different colored framing border, two inches wide, to each quilt and finished with a six inch outer border. The blue, brown and pink framing borders each seem to call attention to different colors in the quilt even though all of the other fabrics in the three quilts is the same!
The remaining two quilts were also made from fussy cut Winnie the Pooh fabric but this is from the pastel collection.
Quilt four was made by again alternating fussy cut blocks with plain blocks. A print border was added.
Quilt five was made by alternating fussy cut blocks with four-patch blocks followed by borders of plain yellow and the Winnie the Pooh print.
I believe five young people will be very happy with my leftovers!!!
