Leftovers


I love art quilters! They tend to think outside the box and come up with quirky ideas. Personally, I'm fond of quirky! My art quilter friend Anne was visiting a couple of weeks ago. We were talking about recycling demo practice pieces. I mentioned that I cut them up and pass them out at shows so quilters have something tactile to walk away with. Anne suggested making cards. So I gave her some scraps from my basket, and Anne made me some cards and told me to go make some of my own.

So I did. I had a practice piece left over from a demo so Emily and I spent twenty minutes filling in the un-quilted spaces. We scaled down the design so small pieces would look interesting. I've put a pin on this one to give you a sense of the scale.

This was fun. I can't wait to cut it to bits and make some cards of my own. I just love leftover recipes!

Nice idea; why didn't I think of it? Will be making some of my own.
