Scraps and Leftovers : To make a Doll Quilt or a Cushion?

Every time I finish a quilt top, I 'm left with a pile of scraps, off-cuts and shreds of fabric. I hate throwing them out and I always plan to make some lovely little something with them... but a new and larger project (or the book keeping!) always beckon and i end up bundling them together and stashing them in my scrap bucket until later, when I have more time.
This time I actually did make some small blocks with the usable scraps leftover from the Susan Quilt. Most of the fabric left was in shreds so I only got (barely!) nine almost 4 inch random log cabins. Now I have to decide what to do next...
I've tried out different layouts and these are the three finalists:
a) Yellow with pink spot
b) Fine blue stripe
c) Chocolate spot on aqua.
Now I'm throwing it open to my blog readers: What do you think?
Looking forward to your responses here (I know we all have opinions!),

  1. I Like the first one best , yellow with pink polka dots
    just makes me smile, this quilt would make me smile every time I saw it.


  2. I like the first one best also, the second isn't quite bright enough and the last one the blue with brown polka dots just doesn't look right against the pinks. I think the first one really balances the pinks without being too bright.

  3. Ann, I'm with Kathie - I like the first one best. Ilkie the colour combination.

  4. The yellow one Ann. It looks refreshing!
