I finnished this a year ago this month (Oct 2010).  Strickly scraps. They came from leftovers of clothing made by my Mother and daughter and filled out with scraps (trimmings, strips and strings) from other quilts Mother and I made.  This one is Mine!  Most of my quilts go the family and friends.  I think the black border really sets off the colors in the quilt and the blacks were left over from quilts I made my grandsons.  Only the backing and batting were purchased for this quilt. If I had had enough leftovers that came anywhere near looking with this I would have used them for the back.  The block is 3 inches square (finnished) made of 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch pieces so it really lent itself to using up all sorts of scraps.  It took longer to sort and cut than it did to sew and quilt.  But boy was it worth it.

WHat a beautiful way to stitch all those memories together! This is a treasure for sure! DId you make a quilt album to tell it's story, so when it gets passed to future generations they'll know where those scraps came from?
