I think it is a rule that when someone brings you a pile of scraps and some orphan blocks, you have to drop everything and make them into a quilt!
Some of these brown 16 patch blocks were rejected in my friend's quilt. From the other scraps and leftover strip sets she gave me, I was able to squeak out enough blocks to put together this little quilt.
I didn't have enough brown fabric to use in all the blocks so I made a few scrappy squares to sprinkle around. I ended up with just two 2.5" squares leftover after completing the quilt top.
After quilting her large queen size quilt (that no longer had brown in it), I "stole" the trimmings from the backing and pieced them all together to make a piece big enough for the back. Luckily the fabric hid all the seams. Some chocolate brown Kona solid worked perfectly for the binding.
Whew....Now I can get back to all the other things I should be working on!
