Scrapped...

is finished - done and dusted!

It's a while since I showed it here - like a couple of months but I have been working on it slowly.
(everybody needs a little sewing snack)
A week ago I decided it was time to clear the table and baste this quilt.

Every day before work last week, (I am currently working afternoons only), I managed to do some quilting on this so yesterday it was time for binding.
As you can see here the back is almost as scrappy as the front,


and the stripey binding is just perfect.


If the wind ever stops blowing a gale I may get it outside for a full length shot.


While I used up lots of scraps on this one I don't see any difference in the scrap bucket - in fact I think it is fuller now than at the beginning. How does that work?

This is another quilt for an Aussie Hero.

Hope the sun is shining in your creative space today.

I agree - scraps multiply while our backs are turned. Your quilt is gorgeous, and so much work with the small squares. Very effective, and will be loved and appreciated by the recipient.
