    Love it!!! That is such a great way to use up scraps. I tricked my daughter by looking at your last pic. You have an almost identical bedroom set to my mom. She was a little confused on how her grandma made a quilt like that without her knowing about it. We got a good laugh about that and she thinks your quilt is beautiful too.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    What a jaw dropper! I love your quilt! you are a woman after my own heart with this quilt. I always try to make interesting backs for my quilts and often like the back better than the front, but yours is just plain awesome!

    What a great idea from scraps and quilting as you go. Good job. I'll put that one on my bucket list.

    by just turning it over.



    This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.

    I dubbed this [string quilt] side "Just the Scraps, Ma'am"! I used black sashing
    and black binding on this side.

    These two photos show the reverse of each side.

    Wow!!! You will get pleasure everytime you see it... I love how the scraps all work together to make a bright cheery reversible quilt.

    WOW!! That quilt is amazing!! I can hardly believe you pieced both sides!!! To me that looks like a lifetime of work just on one quilt. Spectacular is how I'd describe both sides. I seem to find I am partial to scrappy quilts.

    I bet that scrap bag is a little lighter now! Beautiful quilt. I agree, you should enter that in a show!
