    Happy Scrappy

    Trying to use up scraps. At I thought this was ugly but now it is Happy Scrappy. I like better now that it is finished. All scraps, all hand done. Size is about 56 x 60. 80/20 batting.

    Love your use of scraps. You had me until I read it was all hand done. Wow. Couldn't imagine not using a sewing machine!

    I like your backing too. Your hand quilting is lovely on that.

    I really, really like your quilt. The black sashing is a great addition and I love your backing too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    really nice scrappy and hand done wow. I couldn't have done that with out machine quilting. But I love to do scrappy, lots of leader and enders. I hate hand work. I even machine my bindings.

    I am amazed that you did this all by hand. I love how scrappies can look not-so-great as they are being pieced, yet somehow, almost like magic, once they are all put together, they look awesome.
