Happy Scrappy Quilt

This is the first quilt I've completely finished this year. I made the quilt top last year. I have to admit my favorite part of quilting is designing and sewing the top. This one was made from a wide variety of scraps. And no it didn't make a dent in the scrap pile. I keep trying. Stashbusters (a yahoo group) has a hundred yard dash challenge that started late last year. The goal is to use up 100 yards of fabric from your stash. They do give specific guidelines as to how the fabric used is counted. Since I got a late start and many of my projects are quite small (under 5") My personal goal is a 50 yard dash. I like to set realistic goals.
