Batting Busting Week 2020

Welcome to my post for the Batting Busting Week 2020  hosted by Patterns by Jen!

Batting Busting week Sew Joy Creations day

For most of my quilting years I have saved every scrap of batting to use because - you never know! Plus, I find it hard to throw away things 'just in case' I need them later. This has led to some creative uses of leftover batting for me.

Here's a mini series of posts I did two years ago when I gave myself a Backings Leftover Challenge:

Today I wanted to share my most recent favourite thing to make with my batting cutoffs - ornaments!

I designed this one for a special issue of A Needle Pulling Thread magazine dedicated to ornaments.

It's actually a two-sided, or reversible ornament pattern that could be made as two separate ornaments to use up even more batting.

I made several when designing them and used them as gift tags that my gift recipients could reuse.

Plus I made one with Halloween inspired colours for family members who love that season and tend to decorate for it. Why not!

This quick pattern can be made in a variety of fabric combinations to suit different decors and preferences. Both of the blocks are patchwork, not paper pieced. I'm planning to design more ornaments with the churn dash frame too. Maybe for next year?!
