I finally sat down in my sewing room and added the borders to my scrap quilt. I then added strips of the colors along the two sides to cover the sides of the bed. My plan is to use black floss to make tacks in the blocks instead of top stitching. I wanted to do something quick and easy. I do need a border around it though, I will probably go with plain black since it will be part of the binding.
I was thinking, this would make a great quilt for practicing free motion, but I want to just have something to cover the bed, for now and then I can work on something nicer for a winter quilt. I think it will look better once the batting and black ties are in. It is a good example of what you can do with lots of homespun scraps.
