Another small quilt
When I am making these little quilts with the scraps I'm dealing much more with trying to use the bits that I've got left / cut than I am thinking about the design, and perhaps I should be trying to do both. Still, at approx 24" x 36" it's enough to keep a baby cosy (or clean - I always used small quilts under my DD's when they were babies - it either kept clean floors clean if my girl was a bit grubby or dribbly, or kept my girls away from floors that I thought were too dirty to want them rolling around on!). Mind you, when the girls were older they were also taught that the quilt could be their space - whenever I went to my cranial osteopath (and that's at least once every three weeks, sometimes more frequently) she was charmed that from a very early age the girls knew to stay on the quilt. They could read, play, snack, whatever they liked - so long as they stayed on the quilt. Hard for DD1 who has a roaming instinct and an interest in everything, but acceptable as a working rule for all of us!
Enough of the reminiscing. Time to actually start quilting that log cabin, perhaps!
