Homespun Leftovers

I’m still UFO Busting…and finished off this little guy…made from the leftover corner peaks of my Homespun Houses!P1200322

She measures 15” X 15” and is going to make a cute table topper or a sweet wall hanging.

Here she is hanging with the Homespun Houses…see the peaks of the houses…well instead of tossing out the left over half square triangles, I stitched them together and made this!  Well actually, I stitched the triangles together at the very beginning of making the first house…several months ago and then forgot about this little guy…a UFO in the making if ever there was one!

Every time I hauled out the Homespun House bin I was reminded of these little Leftovers…so I stitched them together, put on some borders and big stitched quilted it using a variegated Valdani Perle Cotton…

P1200335The stitching didn’t take long at all on such a small project.   P1200334

Don’t you love it when you can make something great from nothing!

Uh-huh.. another one bites the dust…uh-huh..and another one bites and another one bites…another one bites the dust…uh-huh..a UFO that is!

Have a Terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P

Wow! How talented you are! I would never have thought of doing that - it turned out great and you didn't have to buy any fabric to make it. Love it!!
