Out of the Remnants ...

 ... A Baby Quilt

Or at least the beginnings of one.

As I said in an earlier post, I had a bunch of bonus half-square triangles leftover from this last project:

Scrumptious Stars
Not wanting to have any leftover/orphan parts, I thought about what I could do with HSTs. Shoofly seemed to be the easiest option. 

My original intention was to incorporate the HSTs into the border of Scrumptious Stars.  In the end, I nixed that idea, so they may go on the baby quilt. OR I might build a few more shoofly blocks. Hmmm... stay tuned!

I was able to squeeze 20 blocks out of the leftovers, but I had to bring in two other colorways of the background from a Layer Cake and Charm Pack.

Red background colorway
Pink background colorway
I think this will add a little interest, along with an odd block in the teal colorway.

Orphan block
The twenty shoofly blocks will be sashed with the same pink diagonal stripe I used as the flange in Scrumptious Stars.

I'm off to stitch some sashing. In the meantime, I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.


  1. Great way to use the leftovers!

  2. Your left overs look like a main course. It's going to be a sweet baby quilt.

  3. If you're not careful, it's going to be hard to decide which of the quilts was the one made from leftovers... 8)
    Both are beautiful!

  4. Fun and bright, great way to spend stitching time with leftovers!
