That was Quick!

Just last Sunday, I shared with you my Staggered 16-Patch Scrappy quilt top.

Now today, I am ready to share my finish!

I ended up having some time on my longarm schedule so I snuck it in and quilted up some quick vertical straight lines.

You can see that this quilt used up a number of gray scraps in the 16-patch squares.  Then I pulled three different fabrics from my stash for the alternate blocks.  Rather than make the alternate blocks square, I opted for a narrower rectangle.

I really like the results!

I used one of the fabrics I recently picked up from Connecting Threads on the back.  And I had just enough of a gray fabric with purple dots for the binding.

I wish I could say this quilt put a dent in my gray scraps - but I still seem to have a basket full.
But I will have to give my attention to other colors right now that are exceeding their storage areas!

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend.

Happy Friday!
