It's EASY being green!

I've committed to cleaning out my scraps. I'm gonna get there. I have an embarassing amount of fabric.... and I realized that I was treating scraps kind of like my china -- I was waiting for the perfect way to use them, and so I found myself never using them!

But times, they are a changin' in the Wendy City.... I'm using my scraps up.
I'll work on using the china issue later...
So here's a quilt I finished over the weekend. Love it! It also used most of my green scrap box.
It's a birthday present for a friend. She's Irish, and her favorite holiday is St. Patrick's Day.
A close up...
I bound it in a green check....
And I'm kind of in love with the back. Dig those shamrocks. And almost all that green check got used! Hooray!


  1. I love this post! I, too, save fabric for just the right thing. You're exactly right... it never gets used. Cute quilt! Great use of scraps!

  2. yes! lets get out that china and use it! your quilt looks great! i cant believe these are all scraps!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. My favorite color is green and I always celebrate St Patrick's Day, your backing is perfect
