Scrap Happy Quilt with Borders




As promised, here is a photo of the quilt with borders and pinned, ready for me to quilt myself. I intend to use a medium dark purple 30s fabric to bind it - that will frame it nicely, I believe. For those who asked, the flower blocks are 9.5 inches unfinished, 9 inches finished. The logs in the border are 2 inch by 4 inch, unfinished. The quilt top is a total of 54 inches square.

Have a great Father’s Day everyone! May all your cookouts be rain free, happy events!

This evening I'm wandering through the Stashbusters ring, looking for a kick in the pants (ummm... I mean, "inspiration"...) to get back into my sewing room and DO something -

Your scrap happy quilt is absolutely adorable! I'm feeling some inspiration here!
