Leftover Half Square Triangles

Looking at my blog lately, one might wonder if I have an interest in little babies.
I do.
I have the enviable job of looking after my first granddaughter four days a week. I am sooooooooooo lucky. Plus, I still find time to sew. What could be better!

This week I made a little doll quilt that would fit an 18" doll.

I had a bunch of tiny little half square triangles left over from the last baby quilt I made where I made snowball corners on rectangles. I find it hard to throw the extra triangles away!

The half square triangles were finished 1", a very hard task for me if not for my Stitching Lines.

With a couple of coordinating prints for borders, I had a very quick project.

I simply quilted it with a diagonal built-in serpentine stitch.

You do have two enviable "jobs", Mary! Taking care of Evie Jo and playing with your amazing Stitching Lines! Do you think Evie Jo will one day put her dolly to sleep with this little charmer?

Very cute! Great way to use them up. I think I have three large plastic jars filled with similar little half square triangles, I need lots of ideas.
