Scrappy quilts are always my favorites. You certainly win the award for stash busting this time around. I agree you should put it in the county fair, and maybe the state fair. WELL DONE!

Wow!! Truly amazing -- GREAT JOB!!!!! What a great scrap quilt!! Now a question -- do you have fewer scraps? Whenever I do something to use the scraps they multiply not reduce in numbers.

You will enjoy using this for a long time!

Just want to add yet another WOW! both sides are equally beautiful and the colors are so fresh looking. I think you should show it. It's definitely one of a kind.

Thanks for that info. I am going to give the flannel a shot, and see how it works. Of course that is down the road awhile. I will be piecing the wagon wheels for quite awhile! I've made a big dent in the stash drawers though, and that's pretty cool!

How sweet of you to give me so much credit -- but actually, I just quilted Stitch-in-the-Ditch on the Buggy Wheels side, and surprisingly, the stitching on the string quilt side lined up fairly well, considering the string/strips were so diverse in widths.
