Default 4 Years of Leftovers Quilt

After quilting for 4 years, I decided to put together a quilt with leftover blocks from the many quilts I made over these 4 years.. Added leftover fabrics used to create the sashes from other quilts as well as making the border with leftover fabric. Then, I took other scraps and made the binding with with fabrics that made up the the blocks. The backing was fabric that I bought but never found the right quilt for it and this was it. I machine quilted and hand-quilted the quilt. With the terrible winter weather, this was a bright light in my quilting experience. Here are the pictures.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

What a lovely result. Those blocks look they all "belong" together.
