After completing the recent run of Fabric Friday Fat Quarter Fun blog posts I left you with a picture of some of the leftover fabrics.

In a couple of previous posts I have been detailing a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.

Last week I highlighted a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.

My intention was that I would have all of the projects finished this week and that this post would show the triumphant results!
