A Lovely Year of Finishes- August

Hello, again!
This is the name of my latest quilt finish....and my completed goal for August's
ALYoF
I really must say, I enjoyed saying hello again to so many favourite fabrics that I have used in other quilts and projects.
A fun way to scrap bust, as well as make a lovely quilt.
This is a combination of 2 tutorials by the amazing Lori Holt from Bee In My Bonnet.
Each block measure 16", so it goes together quite quickly.
Here is one of the blocks, which is called Scrappy Crossroads.
The cross is formed when joined with other blocks.
The quilting is pretty straight forward...
intersecting grid....

For the binding, I used a golden yellow and white wide stripe.
The backing is a multi dot fabric I got from a local fabric shop. I think it picks up all the colours in the quilt top!
This lap quilt measures 51" x 66"
A great snuggle size!
Linking up this finish for
A Lovely Year of Finishes.
