I keep trying and trying
to use up my seemingly never-ending fabric scraps...
so when Lori, of Humble Quilts blog,
announced she was again hosting a swap
of small doll quilts,
I jumped at the chance!
I had some red and cream half square triangles
already made, so decided to use them along with some
1 1/2 inch strips from the scrap bag.
I did the binding in red that matched the color of the pinwheels, and added one of my favorite of all time fabrics for the backing. After hand-quilting, I even remembered to add the corner hanging pockets - one of them the label.
I packaged it up, put it into a mailing envelope, added some Ohio-made chocolate Buckeye candies, and sent it off to Sharon (Grass Roots Quilting blog).
Since everything was from scraps, I don't even know what the finished measurements were!
I usually try to add a Ladybug to each quilt that I make,
as Ladybugs are said to represent LUCK,
AND they are also the state insect of Ohio.
Since I didn't have a repro-fabric with ladybugs,
I added a hand-drawn one to the label.
I've heard from Sharon, and she said that this little quilt looks like something she would have made herself, so it was perfect for her.
I love my scraps...
Lots and lots of small scraps!
