I quilt, therefore I am...

So, about a month or so ago, I saw this quilt http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370827.0, which inspired me to go through all of my scraps, too.

I found two rolls of fat quarters that I hadn't used. Originally, they were to make fat quarter dresses for my DD, but I never got around to doing anything with them.  But the colors were so wonderful, I felt that they would make an amazing quilt together.

Thus, is my "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" quilt, with a matching pillow, to boot.

The batting I used was actually a recycled electrical blanket, with the wires pulled out of it. I've found that it makes a WONDERFUL batting, and is warm, as well as easily washed.  It's also SUPER cheap, which is great for those of us on a budget.  The piping around the edges of the pillow were also hand-made, with scraps of the same blanket.

I hope you enjoy my endeavor.
