Blogger's Quilt Festival - Scrappy!

Giant X-Plus 

Made with blocks from my lovely bees, F+F2 and MoStash, I added the jumbo 24" size blocks (tutorial here). This was the flagship quilt at my very own show at our LQS in December/January and is now on MY bed - and such eye candy.   I just love to look at all the scraps. 
So large, it wouldn't fit very well on my backyard fence so poor thing had to drag in the dirt a bit (and even got stepped on by my dogs -oops!)
Fussy cutting and choosing what fabric would be in the jumbo blocks was especially fun.  
96"x96" FMQ although challenging was quite the accomplishment on my home machine.  Although it's not something I'd recommend or do again!

The back features my favorite fabrics used and the bonus triangles from the front tie it all together.

This quilt to me is the definition of scrappy so I'm linking up to Scrappy category of Blogger's Quilt Festival 2014 at Amy's Creative Side. Check it out and remember to vote for your favorite.
