Love how you did the border with the print squares, and that red one is a cute popper! It looks like you used an AccuQuiltGo to cut up the scraps into perfect strips. What a Godsend and timesaver it can be. It will be fun to see what you do with the strips.

Turning a bin of chaos into organized strips is always great progress. There are lots of worse things than new projects. After a finish a new start seems like a great idea.

Great job- on the quilt and getting snagged into a new project!

Kat Scribner said...

Quilter Kathy said...

Oh yes... I accidentally start new projects all the time *snort*

Quilty Fred said...

Congrats! on your newly completed BLUE quilt top. LOVE that little pop of red and that you ACCIDENTALLY started a new project!!!

Terri said...

Wow! a whole quilt of light blue (and one square of red- love it) in one month. I am shamed. I might be finishing 3 blocks this month. I need to up my game. Thanks for the reminder.

Great job getting a quilt top done this month. Me would I ever start a new project with out panning to. NO. Of course we all do it, but that is OK.

Gypsy Quilter said...

Woo hoo, look at that, a finished top!

Oh nooo, I never start new projects. ROFL!

Cathy said...

Oh, I thought the top was already completed but I see you added a cute little border. Nice addition.

Can't wait to see what the new project will be!

I've had several oops-I-started-another-project incidents. Just this month, actually...
Love the borders on your bluesy quilt! Inspired!

Jo said...

Nothing like using up those scraps. I think string quilts are the way to go this year..

Sarah said...

Wow, almost a finish....impressive!

Ivani said...

I like the red pinch with those blues.
Congrats it is almost a finished quilt.

Carlie Nichols said...

oh, my!! I have lots of projects in the works!! Didn't know I was supposed to finish one before starting another. Lucky for me I take inventory in Jan. and found yet another. Thanks for your inspiration and motivation.

Mari said...

No, never, I never do that. :) The blue quilt looks great!

Quiltdivajulie said...

Who? ME? Nope - not ever - never ever. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Kate said...

Congrats on a very pretty finished flimsy. Well even if you did start a new project, at least you corralled some scraps along the way.

Angie said...

Blue Blue Blue turned out great - I like the "improv" borders!

Karen's Korner said...

Love the quilt. Scraps makes scraps!!!!!

Ellen said...

I love your top - it is going to make a wonderful quilt. Great job on taming those scraps!

Snowcatcher said...

That blue quilt top is just adorable, and the borders!!! How creative! I need to get going on my scraps, but now that I'm done with last year's Christmas quilts, I haven't been in overdrive production mode. I'm not burned out. I just don't have any deadlines!!!
