    It is a perfect hodge-podge of beauty. Something about the whole thing just sings. Maybe it is the personification of "Carefree".

    Fun, fun, fun! Sometimes it's just important to cut loose and let it fly. And what wonderful results you had!

    It's so pretty! Wasn't it fun just to "play" with your fabrics? The result is wonderful! Enjoy!

    Oh, I think it's perfect for what you wanted and you did have fun! The colors are great and I love the scrappiness of it.

    Who cares if it is lumpy as long as you are happy with it. It truly reminds me of some of the quilts my mom use to make. Be happy with it it is beautiful and after all it was FREE except for the time taken to make it.

    Thank you so much. I'm teaching a lady to quilt. She thinks everyone does perfect quilts. I keep telling her that we don't. So I have bookmarked this so she can read it and see it. Now maybe she will believe me.
