OHgosh Your quilt is absolutely fabulous!!! The colors are so pretty. My, how many scraps did you go through???? Hopefully, it made quite a dent in your piles. Thanks for all of the hints and links to make this. For sure, I'm going to keep this in mind for a future project. Just beautiful....

Wow! Lots of work but the quilt is very beautiful. And you did two for one! Great idea to use up scraps.

Wow! I'm so impressed and inspired, both sides are beautiful! I'm working on reducing my scraps and your quilt proves scrap reduction can be beautiful!

I completely agree with everything Feline says. Amazing.

Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments! I really appreciate that.
By doing it reversible, it used twice as many scraps with only one batting and taking up the space of only one quilt on the shelf -- leaving more room for more quilts!

Wow Wow Wow!
But did you make a dent in your scrap bag?
I love both sides! Was it a trick to get them lined up perfectly when you layered it?

OMG that is a wonderful 2-sided quilt! Love scrappy all the time, and string blocks are a fave of mine. The buggy wheels has so much sparkle and pop ...
