Modern plus quilt left overs make bonus project

OK, remember this quilt?
I realised that I had lots of left overs.  My default position when buying fabric and I don't have a pattern, is to buy too much yardage.  But lovely Ann from Periwinkle Patchwork had done the calculations for me so I didnt over purchase.  But I stuffed up the cutting.  So lovely left overs, not excessive, but enough for a bonus project.  
Hmmmm, I need a quick gift for a  `0' birthday - one of those parties where gifts are not allowed, but you want to say "Happy Birthday - you are special".
  Hmmm....I have still not made the Tic Tac Toe quilt by Blossom Heart that I have listed on my Wish List for this year.
The original pattern makes 12" blocks, but mine are 8", because that fitted with the pre cut scraps I had.  Love, love, love this block!  
I am not going to place the blocks on point, but this is going to a retired nurse who worked overseas for Red Cross, so it is very fitting!
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. The perfect block for your friend. Glad you were able recalculate and use those leftover pieces.

  2. Such a good use of leftovers. Sounds like the perfect "non-gift". :)

  3. I haven't seen that block before. It looks like a great use of left-overs, and perfect for a Red Cross worker.
