Quilt as you go scrappy

I cannot throw fabric scraps away.  Large or small, I have a compulsive need to use them in something.......anything.  So, from past projects, I had this bunch of baggies full of half square triangle pieces that needed a home.  This lead to the centers of these blocks.  The outside of each block is composed of slightly orphaned 2.5" strips....you know...the ones that are one of a kind and not quite 42"?  The blocks themselves are 10.5 x 10.5.  I have 4 left over for cornerstones, and had enough for a 6 x 6 block grid.  I also found some beige, marbled fabric for the border....just enough to do the job, not enough to leave me more scraps to deal with.  The backing....some really busy Celtic knot fabric that was a sale too good to pass up about 3 years ago, and because the price was right, I got lots of it....like 6 yards.  I am definitely putting a dent in that piece.  So, from a little bit of nothing, this is what happened.   I'm happy, and someone will be warm under it. :)

I love your idea and your quilt.  I also have a box full of HSTs  for the same reason.  Do you mind if I STEAL your idea?

I'd be flattered, Diana. :)  There won't be any two exactly alike, as we all have different scraps to work from. :)

I have lots of scrap fabric also and really love how you put your quilt together.  Nice colors and pattern!
