    This is my first scrap quilt. It is made out of mostly orphan blocks. The back is made out of cloth napkins that I bought at a yard sale for 25 cents. They stretched a little after washing. I also got the batting at the thrift store for two dollars. I really like it. The quilting is horrible, but I still like the quilt.

    Nice,I love the quilt, I like to see more recycling or what ever they are calling it these days lol. With todays economy these types of quilts gives confidence to those who can not afford fancy fabrics and lets them know old fashioned is still beautiful!!!

    What a fun quilt!! I like the idea of using orphan blocks and making a scrap quilt. I have a few blocks flying around without a home. :thumbup:

    I don't think your quilting is horrible! It looks soft and scrunchy, a perfect scrappy quilt.

    Love it....and I don't think the quilting is horrible either. Just think...there will never be a quilt like it...it's a total one-off, gorgeous original with planet saving properties!
