Scrap Happy

Finally began and finished a quilt (for college-bound daughter) this past year. Paying for the carpal tunnel surgery now. I was inspired by folk African-American quilts to make the most of a pile of scraps destined for the trash heap (rounding it out with new backing and binding fabrics). Note the overlapping rectangles quilting - wish the four different thread colors showed better!
