Happy Trails Quilt

I'm on a mission to get rid of all my donated fabrics as well as my old stash. I took out some pretty browns from the donation bin and decided to pair it with some old beiges from my stash. There were enough of these fabrics to make a Happy Trails quilt.  It's a Missouri Star Quilt Company pattern that seems like a quick and easy project.  I couldn't believe it when I looked at the selvages of the background fabrics I pulled. The years were 1992 and 1997.  I sure was right about needing to use up my old stash - ha!
Within the last few weeks I made the quilt top, backing and quilted the quilt. I also stitched 2 large leftover pieces of batting together. It feels good not to let 100% cotton batting go to waste. I think it turned out rather nice. I'm happy that I could sew the binding on using the donated fabrics too.

This will make a nice donation to our church group for a shut-in or someone else in need.
