Leftover bits & bites

After making the wedding quilt, I had lots and lots of leftover cut off triangles in really fun colors.

So I sewed a bunch together and made two minis - I call them Leftover Bits (7 x 7'') and Leftover Bites (7 x 7 1/2 '').

I brought Leftover Bits to my local MQG meeting on Sunday for a mini exchange.

Look what I got back in the exchange!  This was made by Pat Cummins.  Love the bold blue/green/black colors.

Have you entered my giveaway for a TO QUILT or NOT TO QUILT tee shirt?  Ends Friday so enter today!

I'll be linking my finished mini's with Finish it Up Friday, Finished or Not FridaySew Cute Tuesdays, , Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee Social,  and Midweek Makers.   

Have a wonderful day! Patty
