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.

Wow, you cooked on those!! I used Moda fabric for the first time on a couch cover I'm making. I love it. You're so talented, Laurel.

Do you know the story "Something from Nothing"--your post reminded me of it. Resources should be used until they are all used up--especially generating acts of love and kindness.
