    Talk about perserverence! When life hand you lemons, in your case fabric samples, you make lemonade, your wonderful quilt. You should be proud of your trash to treasure quilt. The colors are vibrant and it will keep you warm. Best of all think of the stories you can tell about your "Quilt of many Colors"

    It's a fun scrappy quilt that has a wonderful memeory attached to it. That's the fun part of scrappy quilts.

    The quilt police just have to learn to have fun.

    You made me laugh out loud, and now my office mates want in on the joke :D

    As for the quilt police - I think you'd be lucky if they didn't abscond with it and call it "evidence"...

    It's such a fun looking quilt!

    Reminds me in a way of Gees Bend quilts. Anything goes, and it makes you smile, what more do you need.

    Oh no! Those give me a head ache. I much preferred the Kaffee Fasset comparison, even if not warranted!

    I love it!!! Like the song says, "I Did It My Way"~~~ true creativity, and nobody's business but your own. I love it when people quilt for fun, and enjoyment of just being creative without worrying about rules and "judging". Not that there is anything wrong with being competitive, but you sound like my kind of person. Bless you, and may you always have such a wonderful attitude toward life.

    Bless you my friend for you have saved us all from ridicule. You Made it fun. I too, have the books of samples, have cut away the paper and just started sewing. What a freeing experience. I didn't pin, I didn't measure, but I had a blast and made some kooky placemats and a runner. Love putting them on the table. "Who cares if hespills" Toss in the wash. and if they fall apart, so what- the project only cost me time and a great memory was made.Pegeth
