the everything but the kitchen sink quilt

everything but the kitchen sink, DONE

That's what I decided to call this quilt, since, y'know, a name is a really important thing for a quilt to have. And Steve was already taken, soooo... Originally I was calling it the "stash-buster" quilt, but that was a total misnomer since my stash is not even remotely busted, in fact it's way bigger. Ha ha.  Anyway, I really liked the way it turned out, and this was my first time doing random scraps for binding, which I think goes well with the randomness of the quilt.

Mostly I'm just excited to be done. My stack o' unfinished projects is steadily dwindling, and that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Plus is frees up some room so I can start some more unfinished projects. Exciting!!

it's awesome. just like everything but the kitchen sink cookies. or monster cookies, as some people call them, i guess. i love that you went with a color spectrum sort of look, though.

Love, love, love this one! I am only a beginner at anything to do with fabric and I have to say that for a person who has NO idea how to put patterns/colors together - this quilt is not only BEAUTIFUL but freeing to me!
