make

I fell in love with this Little Leapfrog pattern a while back. Looking at the link this morning- so many cute ideas! But, I digress...
While shopping at my favorite Goodwill in Maysville, KY, I found a Strawberry Shortcake valance. Some sweet grandma or mommy probably made it for a little girl's room a long time ago. Not wanting to waste an inch, I spent an evening picking out every stitch.
Thirty little blocks came first:
So much fun to make!
I started playing with the layout. Random is so hard for me.
 My brain doesn't think that way. So they are kinda organized.
It's all put together now, and I've started the hand-quilting.
Even though the tiny squares look wonky, 
they're all centered on two sides. Who knew?
Happy Valentine's Day!

This will be such a cute quilt for some lucky little person.

Sweet. I love the pattern - kind of an off set Cobblestone. And finding the fabric to set them - love it.

What a great way to use up scraps. Well done for repurposing that fabric. Do you think about the person who made an item when you buy it from the op shop? I do. Silly, imaginative me makes up little stories about them.

I'm not good with random either. ;) I like how you chose the layout!

What a fun way to use up a novelty print.

I don't do random well either, my brain naturally looks for patterns, so random just doesn't compute.
