Scrap Stack Quilt

This is one of my favorite scrap quilt patterns lately...I have another quilt top just like this one I need to finish. The squares are cut 2.5 x 4.5 inches, so my scrap bin had much to contribute to this quilt. Nothing makes me happier than using up scraps.
I think this pattern appeals to me because it is random, but somewhat organized scrappy. I was inspired by this quilt I found on Pinterest several years ago, but there are many tutorials out there similar to it.
For the binding I used up my leftover bindings from previous quilts. (I sew them together each time I finish a quilt...once I have a long enough piece I use it as binding).
It adds to the scrappiness.
For the backing I used my stash...I purchased this stripe on sale years ago, with hopes of using it as a binding...but I didn't realize the stripe was going the wrong way, and not good for binding. (Hate when that happens).
I love these bears, added to the backing to make it wide enough.

Quilt stats Finished size: (forgot to measure) Pattern: rectangles cut 2.5 x 4.5 in Fabric: front-scraps ● binding- scraps ● backing-stash Batting: Warm and White
