About That Leftover Fabric and Scraps

A scrappy baby doll quilt.

In the last post I showed some blocks I’ve been working on that use up scraps from the Sampler QAL. And the one I made last summer for the Qube Workout QAL was a scrappy one using the 8″ Qube. Of course there were some extra HST’s left from that too. So my granddaughter (the one with four older brothers) is getting a quilt for her baby doll with some of the extra HST’s. She plays and dresses like a real girlie girl but becomes a rough and tough girl when it comes to her brothers. This is her baby doll quilt that was quilted yesterday. I laid a strip of the binding fabric on one edge so you can see how it will be bound. It’s definitely bright.

And here’s a picture of that cute little one. I think the scrappy quilt will match her sunglasses perfectly.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

      1. How old is she? Our granddaughter tucks her babies under, blankets, towels, anything that’s handy then warns us to be quiet…..shhhhh!
        She’s 3 and going to be an excellent mommy. ?

        1. She’s 3 too and does those very same things – but she also races her brothers down the hallway with the baby in the stroller – LOL. She will be 4 in a couple of months, but she’s been taking care of that baby for at least two years now. I think they have good mommy role models.
