Completed Granny Squares

Look what got finished!  This little guy is making it's debut as a finished quilt.  I just love how the bold threads look along side the blocks. 

I also added small diamonds between the blocks and a boarder around the outside edge.  

The binding is scrappy.  A scrappy quilt deserves a scrappy binding.  As I use up fabric, I cut a 2.5 inch piece and sew the strips together.  Eventually I had enough binding for the quilt.  (Another great way to use up those small pieces instead of tossing them out.)

 Here are the final images with the binding on.  

And the back is also scrappy!  Talk about a super scrappy quilt!

Now it's time to sit in that rocker with a good book!

Sew long for now,
