    Hi Everyone,

    What do you do with the leftovers after you make a baby quilt from your scraps? Why, you make a tiny quilt to wrap up with a stuffed animal along with the quilt for the new baby!

    Here are a couple of pictures of baby quilts I've made recently for my daughters' friends...practicing for my own grandbabies someday!

    Every stitch, start to finish...on my Janome QC DSM and my HQ Prostitcher!

    Off to add a binding to one I did this weekend. Keep cool!

    You clever gal!! I'm very partial to elephants and I think I'm in love with the stuffed elephant & matching quilts.
