So you might recall, but the Clementine quilt I made back here had a really neat setting. But with that really neat setting came a bunch of rather large leftover triangles. And I loved the super low volume feel of them, and didn't want to just relegate them to the scrap drawer. So I made them into HST's because they always come in handy, right :)
And then I remembered, I had a whole bunch two patches sitting in a drawer from when I made the little cutting error back here, and was trying not to waste but then couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with the two patches. So I made the Two Patches into Four Patches and then it hit me.
Half Square Triangles and Four Patches made me think of this quilt I made last year, and I knew it was the perfect fit. A Jacob's Ladder for my Leftovers ;) I even used some leftover yardage for the borders and binding, and as you can see, I had to add a little red in that binding as I ran out of my leftovers. But I think that just adds a special little pop ;)
I quilted it with my new favorite all over Loose Feathers. Seriously, I remember how scared I was to do this for the first time because feathers were so intimidating, now I can't get enough of it. It is just so fun to quilt and so fast. Perfect for those last minute quilts you are trying to finish before New Years ;)
And that is my Jacob's Leftovers. It finished at 70" square and since this was made from leftovers, I don't really have a purpose for it at this time. It could be really cute at the family cabin, or maybe a gift for a wedding. We'll see where it ends up, but for now, I am just pleased as punch with the finish and what better way to end out the year than with an all leftovers quilt :)
Thanks for stopping in today and I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy New Year!!!
