Quickie Quilt 2 With Remnants

Here is a pic of the remnants I used for this project.


I like to have an assortment of flannel and soft minky in the baby-blanket-making stash. The pink flannel became the designated backing, since it was the biggest piece. The others would have to be pieced together, which I did on the serger; having decided how many blocks would need to be cut to fit on the backing piece.

lining up the blocks on the backing

I did a little machine embroidery on the pink flannel backing. I had a couple of options for finishing: satin blanket binding or white jumbo rick-rack. Which would you have chosen?

I wasn’t going to add batting, until I showed the work-in-progress to the Wednesday Night Knitting Group, and Lois asked “What kind of batting are you going to use?” After mulling it over, I knew that I would insert batting (polyester because that’s what I have in the batting stash just now), use the satin blanket binding, and tie-quilt the patches with white baby yarn. Thanks, Lois!

    It is beautiful and looks like you spent hours on the planning and matching and detail. I love it. Great job. Awesome use of your stash. Lucky, Ellie!!! 🙂
    Thanks for inspiring us all to use our stashes. I am, today, actually, taking inventory of my boxes here and boxes there and matching things up and making a list of things I can make with what I have so I can sell useful items and clean out my studio!!! Thanks for validating my plan. 🙂

    I love your beautiful embroidery! Dedicating the piece by name is a great idea, too.
