This was such a fun project and a great scrapbuster. I also learned a lot about colour. My aim was to use just what I had on hand. I did not want to buy anything. This was a total scrapbuster. I even used up lots of pieces of batting that had been trimmed from previous quilts. I did buy fabric to use for backing. Fabricville had a "Buy 1 Metre get 2 Metres free" sale. I needed 4 metres for backing. So I got 6 metres for $19.99. Now, to get it quilted. More on that later.
