    I really like your quilt but have to question the origin of its name. Were you sewing a Mile a Minute while piecing? Looks like there were no speed bumps on the trip. Your nephew will love it for years and years.

    great way to use scraps........... I have several quilts like yours and I always have one in progress = make blocks as I get scraps and then when I need a quilt in a hurry I have blocks made up and ready to go.

    That would be a great name... "Controlled Chaos"! But, no matter what you call this quilt, I call it FABULOUS! I love it & I know your nephew will, too! So glad you're posting here... keep'em coming!

    The sashing and cornerstones really bring out the best in the crumb blocks. Nephew is going to love it. May in Jersey

    The sashing really makes it pop. Scrap quilts are wonderful. Really nice job and a quilt your nephew will treasure.

    Wonderful use of scraps. Did you use a foundation for the piecing? I am sure your nephew will love his new quilt. I do.
