Well today I managed to finish this quilt.
It's the quilt for Nathaniel's class auction ~ "It's a zoo in here!". I think it fits the bill. I had a bit of leftover fabric from the backing since you have to make the backing bigger than the front and then you cut it off before binding it. Usually these pieces are anywhere from 2" to 10" or sometimes more. I had quite a bit that was about 5½" from the side of the quilt and then there was another even larger piece from the bottom of the back. Instead of adding these leftovers to the scrap pile (well, there are many of these piles now) I decided to use them immediately. I paired them up with the leftovers from the binding fabric and made all this!
It's two of my "pretty pouches", three wonder wallets, 4 tissue covers, and a set of coasters. Now what will I do with these? Who knows ~ maybe I'll have to do another "giveaway" on here.
I know I've been getting a bit more traffic lately ~ some days upwards of 30 visitors ~ but y'all aren't leaving comments!
I know some of you (and you know who you are1) think I don't know you are reading my blog but guess what ~ my handy little site meter tells me who has read my blog. Well, it doesn't tell me exactly, but it gives me enough info (what ISP you use and where you are using it, etc.) to figure out who you are, so come on, fess up and leave me a comment!
Tell ya what.. leave me a comment between now and Sunday and I'll pull several names and send out some goodies. How about it? Up for the challenge?
Well I feel I've accomplished a lot today ~ So, how was your day?
