I got after the white scraps left in the bin. Got them all cut and found one piece of backing that is big enough for a lap sized quilt. I put that piece in the backing pile.

I had a busy day getting files moved on the computer for work. I have a bit more to do tomorrow and then I will be ready to have the boss lady fill in some gaps that I cannot answer. I did get to cutting that pile of whites. Here is what I have done. I cut 3.5", 3", and 2.5" pieces. I ended up with a lot more than I thought I would.

I spent most of my day cutting scraps from the bin of black, grays, and creams. There is and was a lot of scraps in that bin. Here is what I got done today.

Where do I start? Here is the quilt. It fit the bed perfect and the color was spot on. My brother who lives in Texas called me and couldn't believe I got the thing quilted and bound in 9 days. I was surprised too! The walls look black in this picture, but they are the dark teal just like in the quilt.

Yeah! The DNP is done, in a box and wrapped. It shrunk a lot when I washed it. It was 110" x 107" and now it is 100" x 102". It is still a big quilt! LOL!!!

I carved a bit of time out today to start cutting the black and gray bin scraps. Here is what I have so far. Elle asked the question about the sizes I am cutting. Elle, you are a no-reply blogger so I will answer you here. The 3.5", 2.5", and 2" squares can be used in a lot of different designs. The 3" wide strips I will pair with a solid color to make zig zag quilts. The 4.5" x 16.5" will be for chevron quilts, and the string pieces will be for string blocks.
