more zero-waste quilting
these little projects are a great way to experiment...to have fun and just play. my hope is to make useful objects out of my leftovers...and i hope these will cuddle, soothe and cushion a babe or two...and give a little bit of love to a mama who needs to know that someone cares.

so funny you mentioned this - i've been doing the same thing this month! it's almost more fun to craft using scraps...it forces your creative hand in interesting ways. yours are gorgeous! i've finished two scrap baby quilts lately and am itching to start a third. you don't live in chicago by any chance, do you? we could have a quilting bee :)

:) speaking of, do you have a binding tutorial you like? it looks like yours have bias cut binding, which is totally intimidating to me! but maybe next quilt it's a go? :)
i don't do bias binding. i just cut strips- not on the bias...piece them together into one long strip and sew them on pretty much like this: http://www.purlsoho.com/create/2015/06/08/sewing-on-double-fold-binding/ i'm not really too careful about it. i guess i'm not a perfectionist...more of a just-finish-it-ist. :)
