Another day, another quilt. So the story behind the fabrics. The blocks are made from scraps from other quilts dating back three years or so ago. Whenever I would have a little bit of fabric left, I would cut them into 1 1/2" strips and when I have a moment, I would make these random blocks.

In the attempt to thin my hoarders stash of uncompleted sewing projects, I pulled it out and had to make one more blue block to complete this quilt.

I was going to use a cotton background but got grumpy and didn't want to iron anymore so I found I had just the right size fleece in a close enough green to make it work.

Note: I did a quick stitch in the ditch around the green borders and called it good because I'm about getting done.
