    really scrappy quilt

    I made this using scraps just pulled from a bin. There was no measuring until the final block. Not sure I like it but used a few scraps up.

    I love the radianting fans quilting! Did you do it FMQ? Would love to know how. I love scrappy quilts so it is a winner to me!
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    The fact that you used only strips and didn't "regulate" them comes out as a organized whole of a quilt! It is really a nice quilt! I understand the hesitation of whether you like it or not, but leave it around on the back of a chair on someplace for a few days and I bet you'll really come to like it. It harks back to what quilts started out being: practicality turned into beauty!

    especially since you quilted it with a traditional pattern, the Babtist Fan. Very nice!

    Very pretty and quilting also. It is amazing no matter how many scraps you have it seems impossible to use them up. I made seven scrappy quilts and still had a ton left.
