Edit: the whole thing is finally done. I had help putting on a load of safety pins, so the quilting went quick in the end. Bound with some fabric I dyed. The backing fabric was too narrow, so I inserted a pieced strio that I was experimenting with.
The top is finally done. Scrap quilts take so much more time, or at least they do for me. I think it’s a combination of more trimming and in my case because the scraps are endless, I maybe am not as careful about seam allowances as I should be-which inevitably confess back to bite me in the ass.
