{Scrap} Love

Remember this?

I made a little something else to go with it, but I just now finished it 
(5 months later).  Thought I'd share...

I used my Candy Heart Template to make this scrappy Valentine's Day quilt a few months ago.  It was a great stash buster quilt, although I did buy the red inner border fabric and the light pink fabric for the outer "saw tooth" border and the black floral backing fabric (#4034 from Luna Notte by 3 Sisters for Moda).

*** Do you ever make a scrap quilt and actually only use scraps???

I did use up some red fabrics from my scrap jar to make this scrappy binding though! I got lucky and found three pinkish reds that worked well together.  Even better ~ some of them were already cut into 2 1/4" strips and ironed in half!  Score!

Natilie Thompson from Nestled did the quilting for me and she did a great job!  I love the all over "pretty posies" design she used.  Perfect for the country-sweet look I was going for.
