Two From the Stash

Sometimes when I finish a quilt project I have enough leftovers to possibly make another small quilt. So I keep the pile of leftovers together in a stack and save them for later. If they are smaller pieces I put them in a ziplock but for larger leftovers I can just fold them and stack them.  In my closet I have a whole shelf that is filled with stacks such as these.

This last weekend I pulled out two stacks of leftovers and put these two quilt tops together. The squares are cut at 6”.

This first quilt top measures 45” x 56” and is made from the remnants of the first queen sized quilt I ever made and one of the first quilts I blogged about!  I added some Kona Tarragon as well.

This second quilt top measures 45” x 62”.  The fabrics from this one came from several different projects.  As I cut these squares and arranged them on the design wall I became a little worried about how this one would end up, but once I started getting the rows sewn together I decided I really, really liked it.

Both of these quilt tops were used as part of a service project tonight at our church.  Our Relief Society had the goal to tie four quilts to give to some patients that visit a local dialysis center.  I wasn’t able to go tonight so I didn’t get to see the completed quilts, but I’m so happy to have been able to still participate in my own way!
