Scrap busting

I made a quilt for my MIL 3 years ago using 1930's prints and had a ridiculous amount of scrap fabric leftover.  I made 2 lap quilts with some of the scraps and 4 patches.  I still have scraps leftover.  Honestly I'm not a huge fan of 1930's fabrics...not really my color palette so it's not like I can incorporate them into other quilts.

Instead I'm making yet another lap quilt with the scraps.  I did have to purchase 3  prints to balance the colors out.  My Grandma's birthday is in a few weeks so this one is going to her.


I am linking up with A Quilting Life.
