What if?

What if I took those angled pieces cut off the strip-sets I’m using for my spool blocks and sewed them together and trimmed them into squares? I’m sure I saved the leftovers from my first spool quilt somewhere with the idea that I’d see if I could use them for a doll quilt but that quilt was pieced in 2017 and I hadn’t followed through. I do best using the leftover bits for doll quilts if I piece them right after I finish the quilt they came from.

I took a brief break from piecing spool blocks to see what kind of block I would get if I sewed those pieces together. Now that I know, I’ll set them aside until I finish the spools!

I’ve finished the binding on the doggie Strippie and I’ll try to get a photo tomorrow. One more UFO to mark off my list!


  1. Love your block!! Very pretty! Great way to use scraps too. I do not make doll quilts yet but just may start. I want to start making table runners, placemats, small things like that. But first I need to finish up an Edyta Sitar quilt which involves very small pieces and is very time consuming. Then need to make a baby quilt and a Star Wars quilt for a grandson. So many things to make.

  2. sometimes the leftovers are more fun that=n what you were working on. The end result is a surprise too ;0
