Scrappy Quilt Along Update

I have been doing a scrappy quilt along with Sew Lux Fabric and Gifts blog and here I am with a finished quilt! This QAL is supposed to last for a while so if you want to jump in and join there's plenty of time. This block is easy and lots of fun. I had been saving strings for quilt a while and used plenty of them in this project. This is a quilt that will reside in my lake camp on one of the bunk beds.  

I chose to add some borders on this quilt because I wanted to stabilize the very bias edges and I think I accomplished that. I need to make another quilt for the other bunk bed but may not get to it before summer. If I am going to make another one like this I will need to start collecting strings but I think I am inclined to make something completely different.

By the way, as I mentioned on my last post I was taking the test to get a boating license a week ago and I am happy to report I passed. In fact I got  97%! My husband got 95%. I am very happy but I really wanted 100%. I am an overachiever. I am glad I beat my husband's score though. 

Sorry for the not great pictures. I can't seem to find my camera cord and have been using my phone. Have a wonderful Easter weekend.

A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
