It was like sourdough starter
I made a baby quilt like this last year and my future daughter in law will gift it to a friend's new baby boy soon. I knew that I had cut to many squares the last time and I cleverly stored all the squares together in a spot where I could actually find them. I thought it might be a good idea to get another baby boy quilt into inventory. Let me just say that having the fabric already cut makes a quilt go together pretty darn quickly. I am calling this a scrap project because it was made out of leftovers. I had to add a few squares but not too many. It was sort of like sourdough starter but with scraps. Sometimes you have to add a little "je ne sais quoi" to the sourdough starter to get the thing going. That is what I did here. Just added a few squares and I was good to go. I also managed to use a leftover chunk of batting and some leftover flannelette for the backing.
Officially this is now finished but I have not yet taken pictures of the completed quilt. Officially I am calling this a scrap project and I am linking up with Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday.
