    If you have the AccuQuilt Go cutter the new rag block die would be perfect - does all the cutting/trimming! Can't wait to try mine.

    These are not small quilts. If this is only half of your scrap bag, I'd love to see your fabric stash. What a beautiful job you did on all three of these quilts,. The contrast colors really help all of the different colors work well together. WAY TO GO!

    I really like your quilts. The red and/or black make the quilts pop. Enjoyed seeing the comparison in the different colorways.

    Oh! I love all three of your scrap quilts. Scrappies are my favorite and I, like you, have bags and bags of scraps that I'm using up in some "utility" quilts. What is a "Utility" quilt? These are the quilts that we use everyday. We bundle up in them in front of the TV, or take them in the car when we travel or use them to cuddle in around the campfire. They are much loved and I'm sure yours will be too. Thanks for sharing.
    Be responsible, spay/neuter your pets and encourage friends/relatives to do the same. All babies are cute but if they don't have a home they live a life of torture, starvation, fear, and pain. YOU can make a difference!

    Excellent use of scraps! I am partial to the yellow quilt, but all are beautiful.
