Using the scraps

scrappy 9-patch yellow
Scrappy Club members recently had a Sew Day.  We had fun starting with 6” squares and making Very Scrappy Nine-Patch blocks.  We ended up with a nice stack of bright blocks.  This is the first quilt made from those blocks.

And this is the back of the quilt.
The yellow fabric used for the setting squares, the green border and binding fabric, and the flannel pieces on the back all came from the Stuff-to-be-Used-Up pile. 
I continue to marvel at how much pleasure can be had from working with leftovers and making something useful!
