    I started this a few weeks ago.. trying to use up my bits and pieces of scraps.. I managed to use up every last none, and then had to cut into some fat quarters for the last row.. I have no idea for backing fabric, because I have nothing that is large enough, or struck my fancy.. But in time it might jump out at me when I am least expecting it.

    oooh, very pretty. You know, if you send it my way, I'm sure I could find a backing fabric for it. Tee hee.

    I really like the rhythm of the white (or light squares) running diagonally. Nicely done.

    hey oksewglad - the light fabric was a cream tone on tone sort of color.. And the inner border was just some long strips I had in a basket from a binding.. it was a little darker with speckles or something.. I am glad this one is done, though.. lots of cutting, and my eyes grew heavy with so many different scraps, lol.

    Mrs Pete.. so not professional, lol.. every 5 inch block has at least one crooked seam.. I am not all that good at sewing a seam straight yet, but I love trying.. thats all that counts! Thank you though for encouraging me!!

    Beautiful!!!
    Do you have some 12x12 or so pieces you could put together, or fat quarters. Your back could be scrappy too!

    I love Quiltville. I have been doing "Leader and Ender" quilts now for about 4 years. I can't wait to get her book!

    I was going to start on her Scrappy Houses, but now that I've seen your quilt, I might change my mind.

    Wonderful quilt!!! :thumbup:

    OKsewglad.. the squares ended up being 5 inches when evened out.. each little section was cut at 2 1/2 I think... the free pattern was at www.quiltville.com ..called fun with bricks if you want the pattern.

    Jims Gem, thought about doing that as well, but thought it might be too busy if I did a back of many colors, lol.. just not sure.. but might be doing it that way, since it is larger than I planned on. so we will see..
