    I call this quilt my freebie quilt because it's totally made out of leftovers from other projects! Even the flannelette sheet on the back was given to me by my sil! Ive put 2 pics on ...one spread out on a double bed and the other on the single it was made for!

    Love it! Looks like a cheerful invite to snuggle up in bed with a good book (or some hand piecing?). Nice job...and all from scraps. Wow!
