    You got that many tops out of that bag of squares? That is amazing and amazing you stuck with it till all was gone. Great quilts and tops. Good for you. I can imagine there are thousands of quilts sitting in little squares waiting to happen in the great USA!

    I never heard of someone who used up ALL of their squares ... you are fabulous! I had to pick a favorite - it is the one with the dreaded HSTs!

    I'm standing and clapping in ovation for your scrappy quilts. I have a tote full of these little guys who keep daring me to the challenge. Perhaps one day.

    WOW- That is a lot of 2 1/2 inch squares.
    I like your idea in the first one.

    I was going to start cutting my extra's into 2 1/2" squares but maybe I should hold off - If you get that many quilts out of leftovers.

    I am exhausted just looking at all our hard work CONGRATULATIONS You have outdone yourself with what you have accomplished. They are all great quilts but I especially like the one with the striped fabric in between the blocks. You deserve a medal for your ambitious work !!!!! Best stitches

    I always enjoy looking at what you make from leftovers. This current batch is truly amazing. I need to go back and look at them again--so many creative layouts from those 2 1/2" pieces.

    You are truly amazing!! All those quilts just since September, AWESOME. Takes me a couple of months just to make one....lol. They turned out great and what a cool way of using up all those scrappy blocks. Great Job!!
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Amazing. Started in september and you made so many quilts. They are all great. Now you have to quilt them. I like to see them when they are all finished. Congratulations with all your work.

    Om goodness, I bet you need a vacation after all that work. Truly amazing. They are all very pretty. How long did it take you to finish all those tops. I can't believe that all came out of one bag. You did a great job on every single one of them.

    WOW justflyingin, you want to come and fly around here and pick up all my bits and pieces....??? You have created beautiful and interesting quilts with scraps and I'm sure they will be so much loved by someone, I read you do lots of charity work with polish women, such a great ministry!!!
    I love scrappies and maybe I should be just like you: sit down, work through them and don't stop until they're all gone..... I've done some scrappy quilts and I sure will be up for some more. Thanks for sharing all those beauties!!! God bless you for this labour of love!!!

    Wow...you are amazing....I loved the story and all of the wonderful pictures...I have tons of scraps also and need to do the same. Everytime I make a quilt the next one I make is pure scraps. I need to do what you are doing....just crank out a ton of scrap quilts before I buy more or did in to my stash
