A Finished Top!

I finally sewed the last few blocks together on the scrap quilt I was working on.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  You can see some previous posts on the project here and here.

 The quilt is made entirely from 2 1/2" squares taken from my scrap bin and sewn into 16-patch blocks.  I then pulled various solids and framed each block with a 1 1/2" strip.

Most of the solids were technically scraps as they were the last bits left over from older projects. I love projects like this that use items entirely from your stash.  
And it is a real bonus when they turn out this great.

Now it has been moved to the ever growing "to be quilted" pile.  I was lucky enough to even have a backing in my stash!  

Yay for a finish! (...well, almost)

Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation at Needle and Thread Thursday, Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts and Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

I love how this quilt has turned out--probably enticed by those bits of teal.

This quilt is so cool! I love this color combo with the aqua, yellow and gray. There is just enough of each to really pop!

Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
