That is, by far, the most gorgeous scrappy quilt I've ever seen! I'm not kidding! Don't leave it unfinished - send it out to be long-armed if you have to, but let it be all it was meant to be!

I think that's a good idea, but when I suggested it to GOM he wasn't keen - thought the quilt wouldn't be "all his own work" if someone else quilts it.

He won't let me touch it!! So it really will be up to him, and he is being a bit of a dog-in-the-manger about it. Wants to do it all himself, but keeps putting it off!!

There must be quite a lot of quilters who like "scrappies" because the response to this has been really supportive. In fact, I think all the nice comments are inspiring GOM to get on and quilt, quilt, quilt.

I'd love to help him, but I'm not allowed!! Its his project, and I'll have to wait to see if he asks for help.

Who made this? You or your hubby.
Definitely hubby. If I try and put too many colours together, I just get a mishmash. He plans as he goes along, and just uses whatever colours he feels like.
