Scrap Happy

A couple of posts ago, I wrote about cutting my scrap fabrics into usable pieces like strips and squares. I cut up enough of them (100 different fabrics) to make this quick and easy scrap quilt. There are 99 blocks on the front and one on the back that became the label.

The pattern is "Boxed Squares" from Click here for the free pattern. Mary's site is filled with lots of free patterns.

I don't have much yardage left in my stash (or what I do have didn't work for this quilt), so I pulled out 12 large-print fat quarters that I've had for ages, but didn't know what to do with. Large prints like these are tough to use in quilts that require small pieces, so I decided to just make a wild and crazy backing with them.

And to go along with the scrappiness, I used 11 different fabrics for the binding, all pieces that were used as binding in previous quilts.

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out, so I'm keeping it for a while.
