As the old saying goes, "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Here's a photo of a baby quilt I made a while ago. I had some left-over four patches from a quilt I made back in 2005. They were left over because I substituted some appliqued patches in that four-patch quilt. So what I did with these blocks is to combine them with some squares of kid fabric and make a baby quilt. The patches are about 7 1/2 inches square and the quilt itself is about 45 inches square. Now what happened to this quilt is that I finished it, put it away on the closet shelf and forgot about it. My life was very busy back in 2005. However, I have now taken it out and I plan to donate it to charity the first chance that I get--hopefully next week! Meanwhile, I have managed to get the string quilt free-motion quilted and I'm sewing the binding on, as shown in the bottom photo.
