Leftovers!

I've had my sewing head on for a while now and have several quilts on the go so...
What do you do with leftovers?......skinny 1" pieces, log cabin seemed the only option but then what to make with small squares?

Pin cushions!... always handy for a small gift.

add a bit of ribbon and a charm..(both from The Ribbon Girl)




The quilt that produced these leftovers is still a work in progress so watch this space.
