blue strings

Here's a fun finish.
Just in time for graduation!

This one was started way back here in January!
I just needed to add a border
and
quilt it.
and
Bind it.
JUST!!! HAH!!!

I love these scrappy quilts.


The backing here is a sheet.
Hooray to repurposing. reusing. recycling!!!!

Okay.
One down.
How many more to go????
Quite a few actually.
:/
I don't want to count today!

I now have a new little friend sitting next to me
as I finish those quilts....
Holding all my important stuff...
like pincushions, scissors, rulers.....
Isn't she cute???
Goodwill, You're my hero!!!!

  1. Love it! I have been doing a lot of scrappy and 'make do' quilts lately, too! The top of your quilt would make a great backing as well!

  8. There seems to be several "are we there yet" moments in quilt making: the pinning, the quilting and the binding are some that I regularly encounter. Your quilt is great--wonderful scrappiness--and even better, it's finished.
