Playtime!

Every month I teach a Lori Smith class at the LQS. And in true Dawn form I didn't make this month's sample until this weekend for tonight's class! But I got it made and quilted! And I like it, even considering I normally don't do things in pastels! Very springy!

But it didn't stop there. I had some left over pieces - so I made these 2 small quilts.

But wait - I still had some leftovers - so this small quilt got made.

And even more scraps so I made this cute little mini.

And then I used my crumbs.

And the last of my little crumbs!

WOW! So much with just "leftovers"! Great job...this is the spirit behind our grandmother's quilting. Make it do, use it up and make something special out of it!

Patti said...

Good grief, lady! Way to go using up every little bit of fabric like that. Lots of marvelous little quilts. I wonder if you really don't work - you just tell all of us that you do so we will be incredibly impressed with what you get done. I just don't know how you do it!

Lucy said...

Wow that's a good way to get rid of all leftovers!! you did an amazing job Dawn

tami said...

That was impressive. All the quilts are gorgeous. I'm not a huge pastel fan either, but those are like muddy pastels and I love them.

Karen Dianne Lee said...

You are so cute. I love this post and how you shared your fun ideas that kept bubbling up to the surface.

That would make for a neat "challenge" of some sort. Just work it until nothing is left!

Diane said...

Oh Dawn, you just amaze me! Each little quilt is wonderful--I love Lori Smith's designs. But I think the crumb quilts are my favorites.

Good use of your play time.

Darlene said...

I'm very impressed! Why did you stop? LOL

Idaho Quilter said...

You certainly made good use of every bit of the fabric. Mini's are so rewarding, because they get completed.

Wow, neat and the colors are very un-Dawn like.... I like and all the little extra goodies, you always go over the top! I hope you had fun at Annie, I worried about you driving home as it got foggy that night.

Wendy said...

Well that's one way to use up all the scraps. I love the Lori Smith quilt and all the baby minis to follow.

Helen in the UK said...

Congrats to you on utilising all your leftovers inc the smallest crumbs!! What are you going to do with all those minis?!?

Lea said...

AAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!! Dawn, I LOVE THEM!!!!
You did a wonderful work with you leftover fabrics. Oh, Gosh, You are so talented!

Judy said...

Way to use up that fabrics Dawn! Love them all!

Guðrún said...

Wow, this is great I thought it would never end, always another mini, and another mini. They look beautiful.

Shelina said...

It is a pretty quilt - the pastels are so soft and comforting. And they keep going. I've been meaning to do that someday - keep using up the fabric I use for a quilt until it is all gone. You managed to make so many pretty - and different looking -things from the same fabric

Marcie said...

I am laughing at Lea! She actually sounds much like you! Such enthusiasm! All those little quiltlets are so adorable. I must say I think you are possessed. Lol!

Carol E. said...

Wow! If we would all be so careful to use all our leftovers right away, what a difference it would make in our sewing rooms and stashes. Way to go!

Sweet P said...

I'm simply in awe of your work. Do you paper piece all of those quilts?

YankeeQuilter said...

All I can say is Wow! Did you bring them all to your class?!
