Well I thought I would start this subject again today to get it going again! I'm finally feeling better after months of the Florida crud. Have quilted several quilts and they have gone home. SO over the week end I sat down with my Bernina and she and I put 1 inch scrapes together and left over 2 inch bindings and added borders to several other little quilt I had stated some time last year.

 

This one some one had made the 9 patches, os just added the plain squares and the borders.

This is the 1600 race using my left over 2 inch bindings.

Added the borders to these left over blocks that someone gave me. Notice the little snipes so you can see the size of the piece!

Made two quilts years ago and these were the leftover pieces.  Put them together and added the black border.

Remember the quilt my my 21 year old grandson made for his friend last month? These are those corners cut off when sewing the strip together  for the 1600 race quilt.

You can put so pretty backing on the machine and quilt all of those in a row.  You'll be able to say you did 4 or 5 in just minutes.  They are very cute and such a good way to get those leftovers used up.  

Thanks for sharing

Yes, please take a break, Dell! You're making me tired just looking at all the sweet gems you've finished! I think #5 and #6, being made of batiks, are so pretty. But the first one with the tiny four patches is my fave.  :rolleyes:

I'm working on hand work as we sit in NC waiting for Granddaughter 2.  I'm hoping today is the day.  Both of my children were born on the 21st and it would be so cool to have a granddaughter born on the 21st.  I'm sure her mama won't mind if today is the day, she is ready.  ;)

 

I did get a picture of Kailey under her new quilt so I'll share that.

Nice eye candy, Dell! I'm in Salt Lake City for work this week. I am working on hand applique in the evenings.

Thanks Lisa and all. BTW I'm still using and loving my Bob's Bobbins, Lisa! Be sure to show us your applique ;) !!!

Dell I love all the miniatures and love that you used up all the scraps!

Thanks Heidi. The only problem I have is I can't tell ANY difference in my scrape basket!!!!! :o

Dell, you definitely deserve a rest! I'm embarrassed to say that when I get sick, all I do is hold down the couch and here you are quilting like a mad woman! LOL I love your idea of saving leftover binding strips and making a quilt and I adore that log cabin you made!!

 

Our week brought us some fantastic news. DD#1 is expecting sometime in October, we think. Two grand babies in one year! It makes me happy to know my little grand babies will grow up together as cousins close in age! 

 

Here's a picture of our babysitting experience on Valentine's eve. Roran was 3 weeks old here.

Wow Del I love all those "scraps" you turned into treasures.  I am truly impressed at your talent. I would never think to do that.

Really cute little quilts !    There is a lot of CRUD around Iowa, too.   So far, we have escaped it, but I know a lot who have not.   Now we are bracing for the big winter storm heading our way.   As long as we don't lose power, I have plenty of quilting projects to work on until it's over !
