Scrappy Leftovers Quilt







This was such a fun little quilt to make!  I used all the scraps left over from my Kaleidoscope quilt.  I used batting strips, and sewed it in the quilt as you go method.  I used different widths of strips, and also a little area of diamonds since I had those triangle pieces made already.

So when I patched it all together, the seams where I sewed together the strips of batting are of course fairly bulky.  I remedied that by doing different decorative stitches on top of these areas.  This made them lay nice and flat, and in the end I love the element it adds to this quilt.

I backed it in a cute double gauze farm animal print that I've been saving for years, wondering if I'd ever make the quilt that would coordinate with it.  And somehow this one did!  Love it when that happens! 

This one ends up around 40" square, the typical baby size that I make.
