Bright and Scrappy

 Last weekend we took a trip to Iowa to see family.
I always try to take a few quilts to bind in the car.
This trip I only had one quilt ready to bind.
I have had it quilted for about 3 years I think.

 I know, how could I have waited so long to sew the binding down?
Well it always seemed like there were other projects that needed to be done first,
magazine quilts, Moda Bakeshop projects, contribution quilts, tutorials and so on...

I have been piecing like a crazy person as of late and yet this was the only project that was quilted and had the binding sewn on ready to be finished.
I guess it put itself to the front of line finally.
It's a scrappy mix from many projects my mother in law and I have pieced.
She actually did all the piecing when she was visiting. 
I finished the borders and had it quilted.
oh and the pattern...well I can't remember.
It's from a book I believe...drat..I don't know which one.
I will update the post if I ever remember.

Well this next week is quilt market in Kansas City.
I am going with a good friend.
I am not sure how good I will be with market updates...
As with each quilt market...I have a feeling there will be some surprises.
