I just finished this quilt today. The top is made entirely from smallish scraps, and the back from larger scraps. The binding is made from the strips that were cut off the sides of the backing after quilting. I love scrappy quilts anyway, but this is the first time I made one that is really MADE from scraps, with no color scheme other than darks and lights. It's 101" square. Who knew you could accumulate so many scraps in under 3 years? And there are still more!!! Do they breed in my sewing room?

That is a wonderful use of your scraps. Nice job on BOTH sides. And yes they do breed when you are not looking.

Beautiful quilt!!! What a great use of your scraps. I probably have enough to do several that size. It's just a matter of organizing (yuck)
