Default There really are no mistakes when quilting

I had a foggy brain day, and after sewing strips to create four patch squares, I cut them wrong. Fortunately had plenty of fabric to get the quilt done, but now I had a lot of 4 patch rectangles I needed to find a use for.

A relative living in Alaska is having a baby, so a bright baby quilt seemed like just the ticket. And all the pieces were already cut! Had fun putting it together, and quilting the “belly buttons” was just a giggle! Finished quilt will arrive before the baby, something that doesn’t happen often in this house!
