Another Finish

Standard

Last week I finished a cute little quilt that I made from my scrap box. I cut up all of the small scraps into either 4 1/2 by 2 1/2 strips or 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 squares.
Anything smaller was thrown out. Now my scrap box is virtually empty. I haven’t used the squares yet but the rectangles were whipped into a chevron pattern that was straight line quilted in the same pattern using my new quilting ruler. I love the result.

The quilting adds nice puffiness.
