Stash Buster

 I do love scrappy quilts.  This one caught my eye last year at our quilt show...and since the lady that made it shared the technique with our guild I decided I should have one too.  Her quilt was over 100 inches square with 7 x 7 squares. This one is 92 X 92 with 6 by 6 squares and even though I prefer 90 x 90 (easier to find quilt batts) I will just have to break down and purchase a king size quilt batt.  Someone at our guild talked about the wool batts and how much she liked quilting with one. Certainly something to consider.
Here's a close up of the square ....I did have a favourite one picked out but when I looked for it with the top finished I'll be darned but I couldn/t find it.  Guess I'll just have to look harder.
Used two of my circular placemats tonight...the other two are at the top of the picture.  They, for some strange reason do not lay binding must have pulled itself a little too tight...surely I didn't do that, did I?? Anyway, they connect with those red buttons you see at the top and fit on my table just right. I had fun practicing my machine quilting so everything is all good.

Perhaps I need a visual because I am not understanding your statement (they connect with those red buttons.) Connect to what?
Lovely scrap quilt and thanks for showing us that block. Your sashing makes it look like stained glass.

Any sizes of each piece ? I'm thinking 2x2s, and 2x4s and 4x4 s after seam allowances, and a half inch border???
