I recently finished up my scrappy trip along. I really couldn't be happier with it. As I've said before, it goes together so quickly. I was hoping it would really make a visible dent in my scrap pile, but for some reason, my scrap pile seems to have a slow metabolism and just keeps gaining weight no matter how much I work it.
I ended up binding it with a solid pink that complimented the pink flowers in the backing print (that I got for 50% off - score!). I wasn't quite sure as I was sewing it on - I was thinking that maybe I should have pulled the darker plum color instead - but in the end I'm glad I went with the lighter color as I think it works really well with the front and pops the edges a bit more than something darker would have.
I know I'll be making another one of these sometime as it really does come together easily and I love that it uses scraps! It's residing on my couch now and is just the perfect size for snuggling under. I ended up using a thin cotton batting as the weather has definitely turned warm here (almost 80s! yikes!). But with a little air conditioning, I still think it would work.
I tried to turn it over to show off a bit of the quilting pattern - diagonals and straight line quilting, but Fleury had had enough of all this picture taking - didn't I know outside was for playing ball? As you can see, he reminded me of my oversight...
