Angela ~ A Scrappy Quilt Top

In December I started making a scrappy quilt  for my sleeping chair (I have a bad back and sleep in a recliner).
I started with a small square in the center and made strips to go around it, some of them very narrow like 1/2 inch.  
I sewed short pieces into longer strips as the quilt got larger.
I think I'm ready to make a solid backing for it and quilt it, but it may have to wait until all the gardening is done.  Please excuse the wrinkles as it has been stashed to the side while I have been gardening.

And please excuse the Ebay shipping area behind the chair, my room is not very large and every available space is used.

It's a pretty and colourful quilt, Angela, and I hope it keeps you cozy. Wish I was able to garden this early in spring.......

Fun quilt! It's still pretty wet in our garden but the flowers are trying hard. Have a great week, and I did fix that link. Thanks for the heads up!

Great use of those strips! I'll quilt it if you want to send it my way.

Your scrappy quilt is vibrant, I like seeing all those patterns together.
