Scrap Quilting Insanity

  Put on your sunglasses for this one! Remember the wild, insanely scrappy Wonky Scrap Log Cabin? It was one of my projects from last year's Fall retreat and turned out single bed size. How can you ever forget, once seen never forgotten; everything but the kitchen sink went into it using up leftover scraps and there's no rhyme or reason to the order!
However, since the scrap strips cost the same amount [as part of the original yardage] I try to use up as many of them as possible. It is nicely quilted with a freehand all-over stylized flower motif, Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom batting and a bright pink print backing and binding. There seemed to be a lot of pink, therefore  the pink backing from stash, making it very gender specific.
  
The scrap drawers are getting overloaded again so it must be time to make something else with them, but next time there will be a little more control of the color madness!
For now, this one is bound, whew, and it can find a new home.
 Hmmmmm, now where might I unload donate it?!

I can't believe you're asking who you should donate it to ;) no not me, you need to give it to Baby Matthew, you know how he LOVES Scrappy Quilts ;) he won't care that the back is pink by the time he's old enough to notice, you'll have made him another one ;)
