In particular, a bag of bonus HSTs kept calling out to me, and eventually they formed themselves into the center of this mini quilt (26" x 26"). Those HSTs are only 1.25" finished - that's a lot of seams!
The leftovers included some stripes, which were just calling out to be a mitered border. I didn't have enough black or blue for an entire border, so I used them together. I hadn't done a mitered border in years, but I enjoyed it and plan on making more mitered borders in the future!
The leftover HSTs still aren't all gone, so I've been using them as leader-enders and making pinwheels. I'm going to randomly float them on the back of the quilt.
I really hadn't planned on starting a new quilt just now, but sometimes you have to go where inspiration takes you! I feel very satisfied to have used up at least some of those veggie leftovers and look forward to another project with the bigger chunks of fabric.
