charm square quilt top

About a month ago, I sorted, ironed and folded all of my scrap fabric. Along the way, I cut out 5x5 squares to make this quilt. The border is 3" wide when cut and 2.5" after sewing.

This fabric has been staring me in the face for the past three week and I finally got around to making the quilt top last night. I've been admiring these patchwork charm square quilts forever, so I'm glad that I got to jump on the bandwagon!
