Last weekend I was seriously searching for my Dogs in Sweaters pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. No luck... But I did find some light green star blocks that didn't meet my quality standards size wise for the Block Lotto. These were left over from the Block Lotto block pattern back in April of 2015.
I love to try to link up to Joy's blog, The Joyful Quilter, for the Table Scraps Challenge.
I thought that they would make a cute and quick table runner. Well, one thing led to another. I had three green and three blue star blocks. I just couldn't let the blue blocks stay in the box. I didn't really want to make two similar table runners. I sewed them together with mint green sashings and threw in some orange cornerstones for fun. Next, I didn't really like that the sashing was only a 1.5" strip on the edge. I threw on another border and now my wanna be table topper turned in to a happy little accident crib quilt.
The good news is that now I have this cute little crib quilt. The bad news is that I'm back to the drawing board for my table scraps challenge quilt. I do need a new little mug rug for my desk now that it has been cleaned off.
