I try hard not to wind up with extra blocks, but with some of these long term scrap projects it happens. Long after Cheddar Bow Ties was quilted and bound, I found another twenty-three little blocks. They're the ones that were missing when I put the quilt top together and the reason it's 3" shorter than originally planned.
While I wish they were in the quilt, I'm glad I didn't wait two years for them to turn up.
What am I supposed to do with these? They would have blended perfectly into the big quilt, but with two of each this little assortment doesn't play well together.
I do have the leftover cheddar fabric, so I could make more.... If I wanted to, which I'm pretty sure I don't.
Maybe they should be a zipper bag with nine on each side...or a border for a baby quilt...
Got any better ideas?
