June QAL With Crazy Mom Quilts

Crazy Mom Quilts is one of my very favorite blogs. Amanda Jean Nyberg (the crazy mom herself) is hosting a June Quilt Along and the quilt she  is doing is one from her book No Scrap Left Behind. Since I had already purchased the book I could look ahead to see how to make it.
These are the 100 string sashing units finished for the bed size quilt. I added some selvages to my strip sets for fun.

I ordered a white small polkadot print (lower one) for the setting but it reads as GRAY for me and I didn't like it. So I looked through my stash and found a white with black spots (upper one) that was more to my liking and ended up using it. (I should have shopped in my stash first!!)

Can you see my hidden gecko???

The quilt top is 85" x 85". 

Next step will be the quilting. This quilt was so fun, fast and easy I might have to make another and another to try to use up more of my scraps. The June quilt along will have baby quilt and lap size quilt info so maybe I'll try some other sizes as well.

Finish it Friday link up at Crazy Mom Quilts.
