    Scrappy Quilt

    I recently acquired a die that cuts rectangles 2 x 3 1/2 inches. I reduced my scrap bag considerably by cutting for a week, took my time. I chained and chained and pressed and pined and chained again. This went on for another week. The borders were inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, so the black and white checked fabric. The outer border is actually blue, but looks gray in this photo. The top measures 80 X 102. Today, I felt like I accomplished something big.

    I Love it. The checker board border was inspired!

    Great scrap usage. Looks like a big pile of Legos. Good job.

    I'd say you did indeed accomplish something big. The b/w border around the edge was a great choice, too, in my estimation. You can pat yourself on the back for this one and ENJOY!

    Great scrappy and you did a wonderful job on it. Glad you used up a lot of scraps-they seem to multiply while we sleep.
