Using up the leftovers
I'm pretty excited about how far my layer cake of Ruby fabric went. Earlier I showed you the quilt top I put together for my granddaughter Ruby from the Ruby fabric. There were enough pieces left from the 10 inch squares to put together a smaller quilt top for her baby sister Mabel shown above.
Then I just kept going and used up all the trimmings and one inch strips and made three doll size quilt tops for the three sisters' doll bunk beds. I plan on making middle sister, Sadie, a quilt top from Marmalade when it becomes available.
Admittedly, I had a fat quarter or two to help with the sashing. . .
and with the borders as well as yardage of dotted fabric for alternating squares.
But I was pretty happy to do so much with so little. Now on to the quilting and binding.
