This quilt (above) is made from leftovers, and to be honest, I like it more than the original quilt!
It all began with a four-patch idea (for another quilt) which turned into a double four-patch. I had a jelly roll of Moda Richmond Reds fabric that didn’t sell in my fabric destash, so I decided to use it up!
I made four-patch blocks, but they looked too busy and I added black plaid, making it a double four-patch (I think).

Once the original quilt top was finished and pinned to the batting and backing (which is pieced), I went to clean and oil my sewing machine before I started to machine quilt it.
And then it happened…
I saw a few dozen leftover four-patch blocks by my machine and thought, what if I sew triangles on these and make them on point?! That will make them bigger and I can probably get a small throw quilt out of them. I took these apart and re-pieced with different prints to make them scrappy.
So I gathered up all the leftover fabric from the first quilt, and started cutting 4” squares, then cutting them diagonally and sewing them on.
