One of the things I love doing, is making art out of leftovers.
Using the leftover pieces of fabric from other projects and making it into a cool art quilt or quilted item, like a tote bag or Christmas Stocking, is part of what Del~Lillian’s is all about.
There are always extra fabric leftover from other projects.
It might be extra blocks or extra strips of fabric; I can always count on a bit of fabric being leftover too!
I like the term leftovers better then scraps. Scraps make it sound as if they should have been tossed away and aren’t worthy of being put into another project!
Leftovers remind me of, well leftovers…my favorite being spaghetti…leftovers are good, sometimes even better the next day.
Fabric leftovers are what makes the difference between a quilted project being ordinary or extraordinary. Click To Tweet
The following photo is the first step of a project I am working on right now, made from bits and pieces of fabric I have in my “leftover bins”. It may not look like much yet…
