WIP Wednesday - Off the Rails?

UntitledUnder the need today is a series of fleece covers for scrap-stuffed pet beds, which are not exciting to look at.  Instead, here’s a couple recent finishes!

Last week I finished the “Baby Rails Quilt”, which is made from scraps and trimmings from another quilt.  It’s about 40 x 50″ finished.

I pieced the back out of fat quarters in the same colors, and I did the scrappy binding.

I also made a zipper pouch out of some leftover blocks from the coordinating quilt; I was playing with the Quick Curve Ruler, and this block is one of the patterns available for it.  I happened to to be bad at counting and had some extras after finishing the quilt top.


After I finish my pet bed covers, I’m working on the quilt for the Good Mews auction; it’s due in about a month, and I’ve been piecing 6″ finished blocks for months for it, and I just need to bring them all together into a top. Mostly I’m trying to figure out whether to use white or cream for the background, and whether it should be scrappy or a single fabric.

And I’m also doing some HSTs for a new Quilt of Valor - those are leaders and enders, though, so they’ll be going on for a while.

  1. Would you be willing to share how you make your pet beds? Or, point me to a good pattern/tutorial? I worry a little about the bed being sturdy emough, because it they get it open, those scraps are going to make a mess.

  2. Such a cute baby quilt, and I noticed you did RANDOM rotation on the rail fence blocks… :) And for the pouch, it’s always better to have extras than have to few and having to start cutting all over. Neat idea using those extra blocks!
