Scrappy goodness!!

Good morning to all!!!  I have been enjoying working on whittling down my 2.5-inch-wide strip bin.  I selected some strips, kitted up these blocks, and here is where I am.  I did have a humility block in the middle of the quilt, where a black piece was turned around, but I correct that.  Now I see another one!  It is staying!  It seems that the black nine patches make the brighter colors that much more vivid. 



I tried to put the bright blocks in the center, and the duller, darker colors toward the outside of the quilt.  Now I am faced with the border dilemma, as usual!  I am not sure what to do for a border!




This is my mini of the month for September.  It is displayed under a small collection of Halloween goodies.  Great fun!



 I bought a couple of mums from Home Depot and will decorate my front porch with these things.  I love fall time!




How are you doing, each of you??

What lovely finishes--both large and small, Julie;)))
Borders are my "head-scratching" time, too. I always end up pulling out so many fabrics to try that my stash gets even messier than usual!! ;000

I am working slowly on the coin strips and my hand quilting--one bit at a time..
hugs, Julierose

Very nice. I often find mistakes in the photos that I missed while the project was on the design wall. I nearly always fix them because otherwise, it's all I'll see once the project is finished. I may as well give the quilt away. LOL

Great job on the blocks and top. I need to work on my 2.5 inch bins, too.

Your scrappy goodness looks very bright and cheerful and your mini looks happy with the Halloween decorations.

I love how you put together quilts with scraps. 2 1/2” are my favorite to cut but I need to get going on using them. Kathy

That's a very cool scrappy quilt! I can't find the mistake block.

You make the best scrap creations!
Fall is my favorite time of year, but I have not begun to decorate for it. The mums are a great touch!

That top quilt is wonderful ! So inspiring, but I seem to LOOK at other people's quilts more than I actually work on my own ! I see SO MANY that I want one just like ! Yours fits that bill ! Happy Fall !

I like the pattern you chose for your 2.5 inch strips. It's a very pretty quilt! I might add another strip around the outside to finish up the black nine patches, but after that, I can't think of what to use for a border. I might not add another border, or I might look at the scraps and see if a border jumps out of them into my arms.

Lovely quilt top finish, if it does not need a border. Love your fall decorations.

I might try a narrow white stop border and then a wider border in a multi-color rainbowy fabric. It's delightful.

I love your quilt! Sure cannot see any "mistake" in there either.
