My quilt is finished

Here's my quilt, all finished and someone was visiting me who was kind enough to hold it up for it's photo. This quilt was a great way to use up some really old scraps. And as my daughter has told me numerous times, "Mom you can't have too much turquoise."
Speaking of old scraps--Lazy Girl (Tonya) on her blog has challenged folks to make "fungly" quilts, using up some really old, ugly, fabrics, with some very questionable seams. I have been looking through my baskets, and I think I have a real head start on this! I have some of the worst sample blocks and bits of fabric. I guess that other people would have tossed them out long ago. Actually, I did have to toss out two bags of scraps that I have finally pronounced as totally useless--not even good enough for a quilt such as the above.
Time to do a little happy dance--my baby toes plant has bloomed! I don't know why, but the little flower is a big deal to me!
