Manon's Little Sister

Here is the quilt I finished yesterday! It's made almost entirely with scraps from the quilt I made with my mom this summer - the only addition was the backing fabric (bought for $1.99, so I don't feel too bad calling this a scrap quilt). The squares are 2.25". The yellow polka dot was the binding for the original quilt, and the pink binding here was the back on the original. Since I was using the scraps from the backing, I had to cut the binding straight, rather than on the bias like I usually do. I really missed that little bit of stretch as I was sewing it on and don't think it lies as flat, so I won't do that again (unless all I have are long scraps!).


Amazingly, there are still scraps left...

There will always be scraps left because they breed! It's an adorable quilt.

I like it! Now what are you going to do with it?

very cute!

Your thoughts on the binding are interesting -- I've never done a biased binding! If I ever have a curved border I will of course but it hasn't seemed necessary on a regular straight border.
