Scrappy Squares

While it's certainly not as perfect as a Rita quilt, I am really loving this scrappy squares quilt top.
I originally invisioned a red and white stripe for the narrow border, but I went with something I had on hand instead. I think it is a little overpowering, so for the twin of this quilt, I'll order a stripe. Yes, I have enough squares pieced for another one of these :). It's fun to try a single design in a couple of slight variations. That will be coming soon.

I think it's awesome! I love the border, but a stripe will be cool too.
