Friday Finish -Scraps Win!

Scraps Scraps and more Scraps! They never end. I used scrap fabric, scrap bits of batting, scrap bits of leftover binding.  Does my scrap pile look, No!  :) Still this finish makes me happy.  I am calling this one "Happiness". It measures in at 53" x 63".   I did the QAYG string method and then glue basted the blocks together and put the binding on. So simple and fun. 

I started these blocks as part of a glue-baste technique demo at two of my guilds. I love how simple it is but truly effective. I love how you quilt it and the backing is done the front is done're done! Very satisfying way to make a quilt quickly. 

This shed is on my walking path and I finally stopped and as if I could use it for a quilt sometime and this quilt was perfect. 

Can you tell I loved taking pictures there? This little quilt is probably going to be donated soon since the temps at night are dropping here.

The backing was 3 pieces of fabric I had from my days of working at hobby lobby many moons ago. I love this mod combo!

Linking up with finish it up Friday with crazy mom quilts
