Scrap quilting success!

I took a paper piecing class and learned how to make the center design. Then I decided to use up as many scraps as possible from old shirts.
I cut the shirts up into very small squares to use up almost every inch of the shirt...it took a long time and I'll probably risk loosing more next time. Anyway, I love the end result since it was made entirely of scrap clothing just as my grandmother used to simply because she was frugal and it was a necessity.
The batting is also bits and pieces of left overs I saved. The backing was purchased a year or so ago at $1.00 a yard. So essentially this was a very inexpensive quilt to make and I'm feeling pretty good about that.
