WIP Wednesday 8.20.14

 Nearly all of my sewing the last week or so has been for the 100 Blessings Quilt.

I started with 10" squares from each fabric.  I then cut two inches off each side. That gave me a 2" square for the scrap book and two 8" x 2" strips.  This little quilt below is made from (most of) those left over strips.
 I was laying out possible combinations, and sort of ended up with this.  I could have cut more strips, but decided instead to fill the center with a red.
 Today I added a red border to tie it all together. 
 I will be quilting this one after I finish the official blessings quilt, but this one will be a nice lap quilt/drag around size.

Linking up with Lee for the first time in a while.

This a great use of scraps!

The red center was a great idea. It totally ties the whole thing together with the red border surrounding it. Great job!
