I bet you didn’t expect me to be making MORE cross blocks today after finishing Becky’s king size top yesterday! I’ve blogged before about leftover quilts – usually it’s when I’ve pulled a group of fabrics together for a scrap quilt – I like to take advantage of all that work I did to sort and press! In this case, I had plenty of fabric left from the fat quarter bundle so I made more crosses but paired them with appliqué circles for this little 40×56 quilt. 

The circles are fused and cut with my Accuquilt GO, stitched down with an open zigzag stitch. 


I’m got some rearranging to do before I sew the blocks together but I’m done for today!

    Sometimes I tackle the leftovers right away. Other times I’m ready to go on to something different.
    I liked the box squares in the big quilt — but I like these circles, too!

    So cute! You could give this one to your daughter-in-law as well. She could maybe drape it over the back of a chair in her bedroom, and it will match the bed quilt. It could also be a wall hanging!

    I have some circles of pieced fabrics in my orphan block stash. You have given me a good idea on how to use them. Thanks!
