Naturally, I had the fabrics spread out and I had a handful of squares and rectangles which I had set down on lighter fabric and they looked very nice so I started playing with them and this is what I came up with! I liked the first one so much that I made another one for me and used 2 1/4" blocks to go around. I sewed a 1 1/2" strip of dark blue all around and quilted it with the regular sewing machine, not only was I in too much of a hurry to do a regular binding, but I am trying to conserve the dark blue as I don't have much left. The blocks were 2 1/4 instead of 2 1/2 because that was the size of strips that were left over from the original project. It was fun to make and gave me a lot of ideas for other scraps that I love! I would love to do an entire quilt like this and I just might! Happy Quilting!!

backing, but I couldn't find any in the right color or that didn't pull easily. I used very soft and fluffy fabrics from JoAnnes. My long arm finally returned repaired after 9 1/2 weeks, so I was a bit rusty quilting, especially the straight lines. All in all, I like the designs of the quilting and overall, I LOVE the quilt! Happy Quilting!!
