No Scraps Left Behind - Items 2 & 3

BURP CLOTHS -- What baby doesn't need more burp cloths, and why not make them beautiful.  I used the larger leftover strips from the quilt to embelish the burp cloths.  To give the edges a more finished look I added ribbon to the top and bottom of the pieced strips.  On one cloth I added a pleated ruffle using the coordinating fabric from the back of the quilt.  Embellishing burp cloths with ribbon, fabric or applique makes a great gift for a new baby.
