Lots Left Over

After Jackie and I made serious inroads into Tara's quilt there was fabric left over so I packed it all into my case and brought it home. I know lots of bloggers have been on a fabric diet this year: I haven't, but I have been trying to use up all the fabrics bought for a project, rather than keeping scraps in case they are useful one day.

With this in mind, I looked at Tara's left overs, and at the minkie she sent but I couldn't use, and thought about her two littlies, and got stitching.

Amazingly I managed to squeeze four triangles from the tshirt and from the baby gro (onesie) she sent me, and even more astonishingly my rough calculations were spot on: these two used up the extra fabric she sent, plus the clothes, plus all the minkie, I just need to get a bit more Kona for all the binding

Not a particularly specific design, but as a use-it-up project I'm delighted to be able to send two snuggle quilts that match mummy's quilt
