I finished the top of my Diamond Scone Bliss quilt last week while I was avoiding the icy mess outside. I did brave it a bit to take this photo, then I hurried back inside, asap. Every wintry day needs to be accompanied by a springy quilt. I'm just sayin'.
Because of the way the blocks were made, I ended up with a lot of these little triangular pieces left over. Some had little colored triangles attached and some had little white triangles.
So, I lined them up in the corner of the bias cutting lines on my mat and cut them all to match. They measure 3 inches from the top of the point to the bottom of the triangle.
After I cut all of the triangles, I stitched them together- one colored triangle piece to one white triangle piece and trimmed them to a 3 1/2 inch square.
Then I played with them until they made me happy. It did not take long.
So, not only do I have a chase-away-the-winter-blahs quilt, I also have a sweet coordinating table topper.
I love using my scraps to create something different and useful.
Now, where am I going to put it?
