I managed to sew on the last two border strips before I went to my medallion class last night. I love how this turned out! Made mostly from pieces so small that lots of people throw them away. This is like getting an entire quilt top for free. I've decided to piece the back ala Bonnie also, using 10" squares of fabrics that I'm not in love with any more. I hope to get it quilted this weekend, but I many find time to piece the back and nothing else. Too many other things that need to be done also.
I need two holders to get a good shot of the entire top, so this is the best I can do. When the quilt is finished I'll get a good picture with two quilt holders.
I also included pictures of my plastic shoe boxes I'd emptied by doing this quilt. They hold 1 1/2", 2 1/2", and 3 1/2" squares and half-square triangle squares. They are already full again - I've added more since I took this picture - and I've barely begun to cut up my scraps. Lots more "free" quilt tops in my future I guess!
Have to scoot and get ready for work, so this is it for now.
