    I find that the suspense of the unknown and the intregue when working with scraps is the best part. So I don't think you have a problem at all . If you do... we both need help. FYI its beautiful, love the colors

    I would say you are very frugally creative, using up scraps and saving storage!!! Great job and an inspiration to me.

    Very pretty baby quilt. I am going to start using my scraps as soon as I get enough to work with. I have made 4 quilt out of scraps I had saved up, working on one now and will have enough for another quilt. Good for you to use them now.
    You do wonderful work, pretty colors.

    I'd rather scrap than do something structured...is it a character flaw or a creative calling!!??

    Oh, I can understand the temptation to see what can be done with scraps and you did a fantastic job of creating something wonderful from yours. It is precious and I can hardly wait to see the large quilt. Great job!
