Default Scrappy Granny Square finished

Hi all,
I wanted to post a few pics of the Granny Square quilt I just finished. Some of you may recognize it as I used pictures of this quilt in progress when writing this tutorial: Easy, no waste Granny Square block tutorial

This quilt came about after cutting my box of scraps into usable sizes. I had a large stack of 2" squares and the brights just seemed like they'd fit with this pattern. Of course, there were only a few brights, so I had to add to them from my FQ's and vintage fabric squares that I had picked up at the thrift store. Some of these fabrics I thought I'd never be able to use, but they were perfect in this quilt. The finished size is 43" x 55". It is big stitch hand quilted with grey perle cotton (size 12), and the back is a vintage sheet. Binding is scraps from the quilt top.

It turned out so pretty. Amazing what can be done with those tiny pieces you had. I like the way you did the binding too. The back is lovely.
