for my sister
My sister and her husband bought their first house last month. This is going to be their housewarming gift. I'm excited to hand deliver it today!
The nice thing about a scrappy quilt is that you can use almost anything to bind it as long as it matches the backing. I like using a bold busy print and then chopping it up for the binding.
This is a true scrappy quilt...all the blocks came from the scrap bins. I love that. And the white sashing (bleached muslin) does a wonderful job of tying them all together.
I love this quilt! Many thanks to Melanie for the inspiration.
