One of my Cutie Quilts has a secret: If you save the triangle trimmings, you can make a second quilt! How cool is that?
The first quilt is Due North:
The flying geese in this quilt are BIG so the leftover triangles are big, too. If you sew together all of the leftover triangle pairs, you can make this quilt:
The blocks are made entirely from leftovers; I added a simple 6" border to make this 42"x48" quilt.
Here's the block:
There are enough triangles to make 32 blocks and but I only used 30 of them.
The quilt is pieced in straight rows, but I quilted it on point using my walking foot, echoing the diagonal seams:
Surprising no one, I filled in the stitched lines with ribbon candy.
As one does.
I found the PERFECT thread for this quilt: FabuLux Cuddle.
I don't want to rush anyone, but I need more babies so I can give away all of the baby quilts that are stacking up in my studio!
