    Love this! Nice work. Is there a pattern source you could share, or is this your own design-?

    Gorgeous quilt, well done. What always impresses me is the quilters who keep count and know to the scrap how many pieces they have used in their project. I would be just cutting and cutting and cutting.

    Jane, those are 2" squares if I read her post correctly. Judging by a book I still own, I would indeed guess that this is quilt is indeed done in sections. Kind of like a sideways row quilt. I just love these.

    I love it. All the colors, mixed together - that's my idea of a scrap quilt!

    Your quilt is quite wonderful. I can't ever see me having the patience to attempt such a quilt.
