The Littlest Baby Blanket

Scrap circles raw edge applique baby quilt

This little quilt is made from the scraps of this very big quilt.  It doesn’t really have much of a purpose, but it is so sweet and soft looking I’m sure it will find a nice use in the house.

I had all the circles in a pile. I just glued them down with a glue stick and then began quilting. I wanted it to have the frayed edges. This is how much it has frayed after one wash.

I thought about match stick quilting and also about doing a grid. But I think it has enough stitching in it for now. For the first time in many years, I didn’t do a nice double fold binding, but instead just folded over the backing and sewed it down. I didn’t square it either. If I decide someday it needs a more polished finish, I’ll do it then.
