It's DONE!!!! Woot woot, again!!

Ok, the other day, after working on the Zig Zag quilt, I was not happy with it's size. I wrote about adding borders, not adding borders, making more blocks, etc. I could not figure out what to do. As I was replying to a comment, inspiration hit! I was too busy to start that day, but here is what I came up with .....and the top is complete! Now, the quilt finishes at 66x84, which is a great size. Not too big, or too small...





I love the way this turned out. You know, if you've been reading for long, that I LOVE scrappy quilts. And, I've been using Bonnie's Scrap User's System for a while. Here is the result of trying to clear out some drawers. The only problem??? They are still full! I got a quilt out of this drawer and it's still full! (And, so is the one above it....and it's spilling out!!)

Back to inspiration station!!!!



Happy Quilting!!!!!!!!!

I know exactly what you are talking about when you say the drawers are still full of scraps. I made a Virginia Bound out of my "strings" drawer. When I was done the leftovers would not fit back into the drawer. They now reside in a large plastic tote.
Loive the quilt. I added it my my list of future quilts.
