I didn't set out to make this quilt top....
Originally my plan was to take the scraps left over from my Starry Christmas quilt, sew them all into strips, cut the strips to 6.5" tall & 70" long and use them on the back of that quilt. I didn't calculate anything out, I just started sewing scraps together, figuring that I'd maybe be able to make 2 or 3 rows of strips. Well, it turned out that I had more scraps than I thought! Not only did I have enough scraps to sew 10 rows of strips, I ended up having a giveaway for the rest of the scraps! In fact the entire "back" could have been strips sewn together, had I wanted to keep piecing them. Instead, I decided to use some grey fabric from my LQS to separate the pieced strips with rows of grey. Once I did that, I realized this quilt "back" might as well be used as a quilt top rather than making it "share time" with the Starry Christmas quilt. I also thought about using the grey fabric as a border, but decided I preferred the look without the border. It's kind of like a coin quilt, only the coins are giant and all different sizes! Haha.
The quilt measures 69" x 83" after being squared it up. Random dimensions, I know, but again, this was supposed to be the back. The only drawback of calling this a quilt top is that it brings my total to 3 quilt tops that need a backing & need to be quilted! And I have 2 more quilts I want to start on very soon! I think those 3 quilt tops might just have to wait a little longer to be finished....
