Done with My Thirties

The quilting has been stitched. The binding has been added. The quilt is complete and I am "done with my thirties" in more ways than one.
I realized that I had never showed you the back of this quilt.
Instead of a solid piece of backing, I used all of my partially completed projects.
Apparently at one time, I was going to make miniature quilts. See how far that went!
Can you name all of these traditional blocks?
The blocks were joined together with borders and fill-in areas of 1-1/2" squares of my remaining fabrics. It reminded me of putting together a puzzle with the various sized blocks, but actually went quite smooth.
Did you remember the names?
Dresden Plate, Hexagon Star, Old Maid's Puzzle, and Rob Peter to Pay Paul
I found blue borders that were cut exactly the size I needed. How did this happen when I didn't even know what I was going to do? Nor the size that it would end up?
And, I had just enough matching fabric for a rod pocket so I could hang this quilt on either side. Step back a bit, and the rod pocket blends in nicely.
It is now official, I am "Done With My Thirties".
