Ta-done! My Wild Scrap Monster!

 
The back in the morning sun. Yummy blue corduroy with a pieced strip in the middle using up some blocks that were left over from the front.

A close up of the quilting. The pattern is called "Sticky Buns" by Anne Bright. See the sugar dripping off of the spirals! They could also be snails....if you sqinch your eyes up a bit.

 
My son was trying to help me...but he isn't quite tall enough to hold the quilt up. It measures 65"x 81" and has 40 monochromatic scrap log cabins in it. The alternating blocks are fussy cut from "Wild Things" by Julie Dobson Miner for Studio E.

 
The border print is a Timeless Treasures stripe from several years ago....it was part of a Dinosaur line. Can you see the spiky teeth now?!

My binding is all left over bits from other quilts. I keep a box of them, the bits, and used them for little projects. This time I sewed a bunch of them together to make a scrappy rainbow binding.

 
 
It is getting it's first wash as I write this. Good news - it didn't fall apart in the wash! Now it is tumbling in my over sized dryer.

All ready for the party over at Ellison Lane Quilts....


The party starts on November 13.
