Friday Finishes - Scrappy Strip quilt!

I spent this weekend working on quilting up this fun scrappy quilt.

On a whim, I used a vintage pieced top that I was given on the back of it.  The vintage top was pretty badly stained, but just the right size for the back of this.  I had hoped that the stains might wash out, but they didn't.

It still makes a lovely, cuddly and colorful quilt, so I am offering it in my Etsy shop at a good price!

So many fun print!  I bound it with dark green - and quilted it with a nice neutral.  It measures 57 x 6 inches.

I have lots more scraps and lots more telephone book pages to fill.  But I think my next scrap quilt will be something different.  I'll have to look for a pattern and decide.  First I have a few custom projects to get finished, so time to work on those now.  I have several more finished tops to quilt before I will be ready to start a new top anyway - I'm working on those UFO's!

I haven't been great at working on my Crazy Jane lately, but here's a block from last week:
Love how this one came out!

I've been laying low with a busy week and a bit of a cold, but I'm looking forward to a good afternoon in my sewing room today - definitely my happy place!  I'm linking up with Busy Hands Quilts as well as CrazyMomQuilts to show off my finishes.

A string quilt is definitely on my to-do list...once I build up enough scraps!

Gotta LOVE a String Quilt!! Perfect use of that old quilt top you were given for the backing.
