Hopscotch Done

Just pulled the Carolina Crossroads quilt off the frame.  It was a Bonnie Hunter scrap user pattern from Quiltmaker Magazine.  I didn't put a lot of thought into color selection as I was just "trying out" a pattern.  Still, it is a quilt now.  I was calling it Scraptastrophy while it was in progress, but when I looked back at earlier entries I realized that I was calling it Hopscotch before.  That seems like a nicer name.  I think I'll see if I have any orphan blue binding hanging out so I can finish it off officially. 
We made it back from Georgia yesterday and then went out to enjoy the fireworks and symphony at Cocoa Beach.  We met up with some friends there and had a very nice time.  I think everyone will be happy to have a quiet day at home now and recuperate from all the activity.

It's a great scrap quilt! I have a project somewhere here using those blocks and I really enjoyed sewing them. Now I am curious to see if I can find that UFO!

I love that quilt! Love what you did with the border.
Quiet days at home are a must! They recharge the batteries. Enjoy your day.

My goodness! You didn't take long to get back to quilting after your trip :0) I have yet to carry my machine downstairs yet.....
Way to put everything else on the back burner and enjoy your quilting time. The finish looks fun -n- scrappy!

I love the scrappy blue borders and setting triangles. Whatever you call it, it's a great scrap quilt.

I love the randomness of the colors - my eyes just keep roving over it and enjoying it!

I LOVE this quilt! Almost as much as the blue-shirt one. See you at the beach tomorrow. We'll be there at 9:00, just north of the first crossover. Everyone else is showing up at 10:00 but Sierra wants to get some surfing in before that.

I think Hopscotch is a much better name, lol. It's a lovely quilt, no catastrophe there.
