I'm a big fan of leftovers when it comes to food. I think sometimes it just tastes better the next day. It looks like I'm a big fan of leftovers when it comes to quilting too. My newest quilt top is another happy accident. I was cleaning off my cutting table to work on nine patches when I found some scraps. For my Circles Quilt, I worked with 1/4 yard cuts of Flights of Fancy. I needed 7.5" squares for the circle quilt so it left me with a bunch of random pieces that were too small to use for nine patches. I was going to throw it in my scrap bin but friends, my scrap bin overfloweth. So I just started randomly piecing blocks. When I was done I had 16 blocks of all different sizes so I made them all uniform by adding white borders and finished each block at 12". I assembled my 12" blocks together but I felt like it needed something more. It was just too white. I added 1.5" strips of Kona in Bahama Blue and 5" borders in black and voila, I had another quilt top. This one measures 59" square and I love it! It also gave me an idea of what to do for my Circle quilt too so now I am one happy chica!
So now I'm off to get a shower and get ready for a night of great food and a few drinks with some friends. I hope ya'll have a great weekend!
