    How about a narrow inner border of white/ cream to tie it all together, then we can help you decide on what color for an outer border? Love scrappy quilts.

    An excellent was to use up those small amounts of fabric left over from other projects.

    Great piecing and I really like how you arranged the scraps in four-patches rather than just random scatter. A narrow binding and a pieced border would look awesome to complete it, or you could just keep adding scraps until it is the size you want then bind it.

    Looking good to me and it will be goregeous once you are finished with it. I'm sure you'll be able to find a home for it. And I agree, with the price of fabric now a days, one has to use up all the scraps.

    Wow, thanks everybody for the encouragement! I want it to be queen size to go on our bed! It reminds me of a quilt my grandma bought ( that I have in a storage tub) that is made with all kinds of stretchy fabrics and tied with yarn!
    Sew, sew, it's the threads that keep love together :>} I love sunbonnet sue,old-fashioned things like 1950's or older housewife things, and like hankies,tea towels and aprons . Thanks to some lovely members on here I now have lots of aprons in my collection !!

    Such a great feeling when the quilt envisioned turns out 'just the way' we hoped it would. So many have stated that they love scrappy quilts, please add my name to the list! I think yours is just wonderfully scrappy and a delight to the eyes!
