My Little Scrappy Quilt

Cutting 2 1/2" squares on Tuesday nights has already paid off!   I've finished my little scrappy quilt top made with part of those squares.

.  It measures 46 " X 63" and the blocks are 8" square.  I had just enough background fabric to make 17  "X"  blocks.  There are 18 alternating patchwork blocks.  The border is 3" wide.  I'm sure these blocks have a name but I don't know what it is.  I worked on this project at the same time I was working on my Hunter's Star.  I still have to cut and sew the border for the Hunter's Star.  I never tire of working on quilts - such a good way to spend time.   Of course I'm already planning another quilt and actually found enough fabric on hand for everything except the background and I may possibly have that....I just haven't decided what I want for the background yet.  I'm really, really, really trying to use up some of my fabric and scraps.  And there are always those pesky UFO's that I plan to complete someday.
Happy Easter.
