Default Monster sized scrappy quilt

Gosh...I'm so proud of this quilt. It's the largest I've ever made (92 x 104) and totally scrappy, except for the backing. My bed is tall and I wanted something that covered the box springs at least, so it's a king for a tall queen. Because my SRii Grace frame wasn't large enough I had Kathy at Cotton Cabin Quilt Shop in Dubuque, IA quilted it for me in a medium meander. It's perfect. Added a green border, the backing is bright blue, with a dark yellow binding. Took over 3 hours with a dog walking break somewhere in there to do the binding by machine. Now I want to do another scrappy quilt, but I have made up 9 kits from my fabric stash that are sitting here waiting on me. Maybe a little bit here and a little bit there and I'll get another one made.

I love it too! I think I saw some of your piecing in an earlier post, of the 4 Patch with rectangle strips in between. I had never seen it pieced this way but it came out great. Looks somewhat vintage to me. I really like your green border fabric and also your blue backing. Can you say where/ what fabric it is and is the backing 108 inch or did you piece it?

toogie.....you have just taught me a valueable lesson! Keep a notebook with fabric yardage, manufacturers, etc. I had the blue's selvage laying around for months...yesterday figuring I no longer needed it I threw it away. Drug through the trash for it but can't find it. I'm thinking it was either Riley Blake or Moda and 44 wide. The green I still have yardage of and am going to use in in one of my kits. "Riley Blake Designs Pattern C8941...Painters Palette by j. Wecker Frisch", it also is 44 wide.

Thank heaven for check registers...I bought 9 yards of a blue for backing from Green Fairy Quilts. That has to be it! The green may also have come from there as I've had it for a while. Good luck finding these, they are 1st class quilt shop fabrics!!

That is gorgeous. I have lots of scrappy squares and rectangles. I never thought to put them together in the same quilt.
