Determined not to buy more fabric, I pieced the border using the remaining scraps cut into 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" strips. Using the snow white background, I will frame the pieced borders with 2 1/2" wide strips. Next challenge, looking for the backing in my stash --- maybe something scrappy. I have 20" LOF and one 8 1/2" square left of the stripe fabric to bind the quilt. There may be a pint size zip-lock left of small scraps ... or ... I could piece them all together to make a little pillow. I bet my great grandmother is smiling down on me -- she was the queen of scrappy quilts in our family. Granny would piece together slivers to make a 2" square.
Just 3 more days until a long quilty weekend.
