I May Have A Scrap Problem.... A Scrappy Finish - Finally!!

Hi, all!

Can you believe it - - -I finally have a scrappy finish!!!  I woke up this morning, realized I'd need to write a scrappy post for Wednesday, and decided to throw the bunkbed quilt top on the frame.

And voila!  It's finished!  I made this quilt using a mad conglomeration of 10" squares that I cut from my scraps earlier this year.  I also used up a small bit of leftover white Kona cotton for the triangle corners.

I also cleared out more scraps by making a scrappy binding!  I always feel so virtuous when I sew all those little leftover bits together to make new binding...

Take a look at this great backing!  I found this flannel flat twin sheet in my stash and realized it was "just right" for this quilt!

And if a scrappy finish isn't enough for this week, here's some beautiful inspiration I spotted out and about...

Anja really inspired me with this piece she made using bonus HSTs.  Isn't it pretty?  Her advice - don't sweat the layout too much!

 And Emily knocked it out of the park again this week with TWO beautiful scrap quilts!  I want to be her when I grow up....

Isn't that a beautiful layout for HSTs?  I don't think I've seen one quite like that before - the star in the center is subtle but so pretty!!

I hope you've had some time to play with your scraps - I know it's hard to make time for yourself at this time of the year, but remember, your scraps are always willing to come out and play!
