Crazy Newspaper Scraphanging

I finished a queen-ish sized quilt (it finished a wee bit smaller than I thought, but will still cover the bed – woo hoo!) and had a box mess of scraps leftover.
Look at this madness! Just waiting to be cleaned up!  I grabbed a page of my trusty local newspaper, the Boston Globe, and just started sewing crazy quilt style, using the paper to give a little stabilizing to the fabric.  Once I couldn’t see any more paper, I used my rotary cutter and squared (well, rectangled) up the block to the size of the newspaper page. I used wonder-under (love that name!) to make some appliques and ironed and zig-zag stitched them on to cover my mistakes enhance the design of the block.

Ta DA! Now to figure out which side is up, and hang it up!
