Scrap Vortex is DONE!

Last summer I was cruising the blogs and found another blogger that was using up bits and pieces, I dont remember which blog it was but it was for this Scrap Vortex Quilt.  I
 was so intrigued, I got out my buckets of fabric crumbs and I set to work making slabs, and more slabs!  I drug this project around to housesitting gigs and just kept plugging was like doing a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle trying to fit all those slabs together but I did it!!!

Now its DONE DONE DONE!  Yay!

I give you SCRAP VORTEX!

For the backing, I used up a few big chunks of fabrics that I acquired somewhere along the way, I for sure didn't buy them.  The fabric on the right has Quilts hanging on a clothesline, way too cute to cut up so this was a perfect solution for using that big piece up.  Then theres a "Debbie Mumm" piece with quilting quotes and a cute little animal garden print.  USED!  

For the binding I felt this quilt needed a resting place, so I used a solid Aubergine favorite purple!

I love it, its done...Yippee!!

Quilting is more fun 
than Housework
