WIP Wednesday - Swap Quilt and Binding

The fmq on my Scrappy Log Cabin quilt is finished!!! Yipee! It only took me 16 months, but who's counting?

Last night I dumped out my bag of 2 1/2" strips and joined a bunch of them to make a scrappy binding. I joined way more than I needed, but I guess that means my next scrappy binding will be really quick to make.
 Don't you just love a scrappy binding roll?

Are you part of the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap? There are some 600 participants! I've finally decided what I want to make, and immediately cut my fabrics so I couldn't change my mind again. I'm going with a block from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, volume 9. Gundrun Erla designed this one and I love the simplicity, the negative space and the pops of colour. My mini will be 2 blocks by 2 blocks. I sure hope my partner likes it.
I'll be linking up with WIP Wednesday, Let's Bee Social, NTT Thursday and I Quilt.

  8. Cutting your fabric so you can't change your mind, ha ha. I should probably do that myself.

  12. I just discovered scrappy binding as well - I used leftover strips to bind a quilt I finished recently (and which apparently I forgot to photograph, as I can't find it anywhere on my blog, lol) and loved the effect. I've been cutting out squares for a fall D9P quilt and have the binding started already, using the scraps from the blocks. I think it's a fabulous look!
