In January Pat Sloan issued a challenge to use up our scraps. I chose to use my reds and cut them into 2.5" squares. For my neutral, I pulled from my stash and used the cream fabric with the multi-coloured stars. It pulls the whole quilt together beautifully even with the eclectic mix of scraps I ended up using (everything and anything I could lay my hands on).
On the back I used a blue flannel with strawberries, ladybugs, and flowers. It's from Fabricland and I have to admit it also comes with a green background, (which I also have), and a yellow background too.
The binding I attached entirely by machine (which I don't usually do). I cut it 2.25" wide, sewed it to the back, flipped it to the front, and stitched it down by machine.
