Default Scrappy Courthouse Steps

Im sure many of you can relate Ive had several large Rubbermaid bins full of scraps from other projects, I have my regular stash too, but the fabric in the bins were just little scraps, mostly 1.5 - 2.5 strips. Except for the white fabric, this Courthouse Steps quilt was made entirely of those scraps, plus the back too! Plus, I have boxes of leftover bits of batting, so I pieced some of the batting together for this quilt. Im so proud that I used materials that my husband kept saying for years to just throw away! Quilt measures 64 x 75.

That quilt is wonderful. The White sure gives it a pop against all those dark scraps. You really made great use of a lot of scrap strips. It looks so ( cozy)
