The quilt finished at 82-1/2 by 91 inches, shrinking about three inches in both length and width during quilting and the first wash. A good size for either a double or queen size bed.

This was made primarily of donated scraps with a few additions from my own scrap bins. I ditch quilted every seam, with the diagonal lines creating a shadowy effect in the 6 inch squares when I crossed them. I like the effect and the result should be very durable, a good quality for a utility quilt.
Though this one will be auctioned, there were plenty of scraps and so I cut enough to make a second similar quilt for us. Hopefully piecing will begin this fall.
Though the grass was soaking wet from yesterday's rain I couldn't resist getting another outside shot in the early morning sunshine!
Right into the washing machine as soon as we came inside. Thankfully none of the deep reds and blues bled into the light fabrics!
And to close for today, a sneak peek at the latest top to go under the needle. Hoping to have the quilting finished by the end of the month.
Happy weekend, and may your email be filled with sweet quilty comments once again!
