I had a quilt kit for a large ruby red quilt that I finished off. When I was done, I had a lot of fabric scraps leftover. I wanted to keep the scraps together, at least for one more quilt. I took some foundation paper squares I had left from a different project and randomly placed fabric on them. I put a strip of black down the long side of the triangle and paired them up. I then sashed each square and put it within a border. Even the backing fabric for this quilt is left over from the original! It's a throw size, but looks pretty good.
My sister loves polka dots, so when I found a layer cake of swiss dot fabrics, I reserved those for her. Then I saw Jenny's tutorial on the Tea Cake pattern - it was just perfect for the layer cake. I put a larger polka dot as the backing just for fun. "Make a Tea Cakes quilt with Jenny"
My husband was the ROTC Commander and this is one of his cadet’s. That got married and now they are having they’re first baby. He is a pilot and she is a second grade teacher. I tried to combine both professions. I also sent the dr. Seuss book, oh the places you will go since they are in the military, they will move a lot. This pattern came out of the baby block book vol 5 issue 1 2018.
I received a jellyroll for Chhristmas but it only had 30 strips. I used the pattern Train Tracks in the book Two for One Jellyroll where all the quilts use 20 strips. I was able to use the extra strips as borders and binding. Then gifted it back to my DIL for the grandkids.
