    That just may be my favorite scrappy quilt of all time! Love it!
    Did it make an appreciable dent in your scrap heap?
    Hope you get your sewing machine up and running soon!

    Wow, lots of scrap pieces used in #6... very pretty! I can see why it took more time.

    Great job, it's a beautiful quilt. So those ended up being 3" 9-patches? WOW. I don't think I'd ever get it finished, at least not that big.

    I love it! My first thought was how it reminded me of the penny candy shop I went to as a child.

    Awesome use of your scraps.

    Best,

It will go into the to-be-quilted pile as the machine I use on my frame is very sick (sobbing) and I fear will need major surgery. Going to use the x-block ruler on my next one. Happy Quilting to All!!!

    Wowser, I LOVE this!! Wait... this is #6 for this year?!? I hang my head in shame... I've completed ONE quilt this year. But back to your quilt... love, love, love it. I do hope your machine isn't as sick as you think it is.

    Gorgeous scrappy. I am amazed at all the scrappy patterns I see on this board and in the different magazines. I believe there is a scrappy pattern for every scrap of material. Amazing artists on this board.

    Very pretty! I bet those little 9 patches were a bugger to do. Looks great though! Thanks for sharing.

    Your quilt is an inspiration and a revelation. Please write up the instructions for the quilt top and publish it. I would love to use the pattern to use up some of my scraps, too.
