Blue Scrap Jar is done!
I finished sewing down the scrappy binding, a first for me, last week and it is ready to be gifted to my sister-in-law for Christmas!
This was a really fun quilt to make from beginning to end!
I rented a friend's long-arm and it took me about 5 hours to quilt it!
She suggested this quilting pattern, called Meander and I am glad I took her advice!
The backing is an oldie from my stash which I think is perfect with this quilt!
I used Quilter's Dream batting and I like the drape, but boy is it heavy!
I have only used polyester in large quilts to date and they are much lighter! I like the feel of cotton far better!

What a fantastic quilt, I love it and your sister-in-law is one lucky girl!
Woo hoo! Congrats on a great finish :)
This looks terrific. Your coloured squares are very complex and full of interest and I do like your quilting.
Wow! I love the scrap design of this, and I'm so drawn to blues. What a visually appealing quilt!
Your blues really look wonderful together! So many blues really make it fun to look at. Glad you had a good time with it, too.
Great finish!!!!! WAHOO!!!
What a big beautiful blue quilt! The paisley on the back is perfect. Great work!
What a BEAUTY! Great job!
The blues are gorgeous! It's a wonderful quilt.
I love your blue scrap quilt and I'm sure your sister-in-law does also.
What a wonderful gift!
