A Scrappy Finish

I finished this top a few weeks ago - I had it mostly done in April and then it got put aside until after the summer for the borders.  You can't really see it in this photo, but the middle fabric is a big, leafy print.  Every piece was from scraps!
I've made this pattern before - here is a photo of my last version before I got the binding on.  It is 67X87 and a perfect size for couch snuggling.

It's an easy pattern and a nice way to feature a large print you don't want to cut up.  For co-ordinates - raid your scrap bag!  You can find it in the book Save the Scraps - by Gayle Bong.   It is called Bosom Buddies.  I've also made Crossed Tracks from this book and there are still other patterns I would like to make in there too!  I love that kind of quilt book.

These are both great! I like the autumny colors AND the Christmasy ones. I'm going to "save" this idea :)

I like both versions of it and love the fact that it can be made from scraps/stash.
