A finish finally!!!!!

After months of working on this project I finally got around to FMQing and binding my scrappy quilt today!!!!!!!!!

The front:




But I like the back best of all:



So I think this is the first quilt I have made where I like the back as much as the front, I would be happy to picnic on either side of this quilt:



But for now it is hanging on the rack, because it isn't quite picnic weather here it is only 49 f (9c) with cloud and wind, so the picnic can wait LOL.


This quilt was improv pieced, I was inspired by this tutorial:

The front of my quilt has 15 blocks (3 columns x 5 rows) and navy sashing and the back of the quilt is made up of 24 blocks (4 columns x 6 rows) without the sashing. My blocks were 12" x 12".

This project taught me a lot about how to use and store scraps. And it certainly demolished my scrap collection!

I wasn't even sure whilst I was making it whether I would even like the finished product but it may be my favorite quilt yet!! Scrap quilts are my destiny I am sure of it, I much prefer making something from nothing than spending a fortune on fabric and stressing about whether I can do the fabric justice.
