Default If life gives you scraps...

I have tried it seems forever to post this picture. Get your sunglasses. This is probably the most fun quilt I have ever made. I love scrapy happy quilts. Got the idea from "15 minutes of play". It just kills me when I read someone is throwing away scraps. Anything too small to use, I give to a lady who makes dog beds for the Humane Society. Nothing to the landfill. I think the quilting is so fitting. Jeanne from Butler Crafts quilted it for me. There is a long story behind it, but I won't bore you. Enjoy.

Those bits of cheddar yellow really make this a fun quilt.

That is awesome!!! Looks like a fun quilt. The brighter...the better. My daughter is so into florescent and she wants me to find fluorescent fabric...lol. I'm taking my time looking.
