Well I am pleased to report that I have finally finished my scrap quilt and I am pleased with the result. After spending last weekend trying to overcome my fear of FMQ which I did on the blue outside border the binding was finished off last night. It is a true scrap quilt in every sense of the word and I even scrapped the back with left over backings from other quilts. All the fabric used on the backing and the binding can also be found in the quilt top.
And here is a close up of my FMQ although I did use a colour to blend in so all mistakes will be hard to see.
It is another gorgeous day here so me and my sewing machine are going to go outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while I make another bag for my giftie box.

Looks great Karen I like how the blue sets it all off
Lovely Karen. I know how you feel about the FMQ and I think you did a great job. :D
The blue really brings it all together Karen. You should be extremely proud of the finished result! I love it.:)
