Leftovers!

Cleaning out the stash... As I pulled out all those orphaned blocks for the kitchen sink quilt, I took out the leftover blocks from the 9 patch gather quilt we all made last year.

I think these are a few of Dee's Blocks and a few from Susan. I think they work well together!

Today, I put the last blocks together for one more quilt for Donations
to go with the Sis Boom Pow kids blankets...

Good for wee lad don't you think?
Can you tell I am married to a Scot? wee lad... ;-)

Funny how the On POINT blocks fit so well with one of my favorite fabrics....
I guess it's subconscious thing!

Also, another yardage batch of another favorite fabric is going for backing on the Kitchen sink quilt. The green and red floral building blocks by American Jane... (bright green and red...like the cross quilt...I see my themes emerging again) completely by accident of course...

I also added some appliques here and there, with a few more leftover blocks...

Now I think I am ready to get it quilted and on my bed...

Happy Sewing!

  2. Those wee blocks looks so happy together! Hope hubby has introduced you to a wee dram too! Did you celebrate Burns Night? The applique looks great on the kitchen sink and I LOVE the border for the on point blocks, such happy coincidences! :)

  6. Luv the added applique details. I tend to gravitate to same color combos too. Hey your eye likes what your eye likes!
    I can't believe you have any leftover blocks left after putting you Kitchen sink together. (Are you still staring at it?) Happy appliqueing!
