Leftover Quilts

Being cheap I mean, frugal, I love leftovers. Food, yes. Fabric, even better.  Ages ago I started a Swoon Quilt for my daughter. I finally had it quilted up this spring (thanks, Maria!)

If you've made the Swoon, you know that there are a lot of little leftover triangles. I saved all these little trimmings, and made mini blocks along side the larger blocks.

I started calling them mini swoons. I made about 6 of them, then abandoned the project. Recently, though, in a studio clean up, I found them and decided to make the reaming 3 blocks. Of course, by then, Camille had come out with a pattern for a real mini swoon. So now, I give you Leftover Swoon.

And, the astute blog observer will notice that the leftovers from the Leftover Swoon became my latest Mini Amish Quilt.

I still have a few more scraps. Don't be surprised if you see these fabrics yet again!

Love your daughters quilt and all of the goodies you have pulled together from the "leftovers". I've made 3 Swoons, a 9 block and a 16 block and a giant single block. I think I have at least some of the scraps sitting in a recycled lettuce box somewhere. I'm going to have to pull them out. You have given me insentive to look them up.
