But dh liked it. Only thing he said was it wasn't big enough for him to wrap up in. HA! it is all mine now. I will use it while watching tv. I also did all the quilting by hand that is why I didn't post a close up. ha ha again. I am still trying to get the nerve to quilt on my machine. One day I will get there. My pic is a little off center buy hey what can I say. I did have fun making this.
    not laughing, loving it.

Nothing will match and the colors will all be a big mish mash, but it will have the memories for me to wrap myself up in.
    lol You sound like me. I was scrambling around saving scrap pieces from the scrap pieces I used in this quilt. I could't throw them away either.

    I am not very experienced in the quilt making department myself. lol I have been sewing since I was 8 years old. My mom and grandma taught me well. lol But never started making quilts till recently. I am really getting the fever now. Im working on another quilt now. But I am going to make it from a pattern I bought.
    You can do anything you set your mind to. My grandma always told me that. And she is right.

    thank you, I too like to lay the quilt on my lap to keep me warm when I do them. lol Quilts are great that way. Someday I will try machine quilting. But I really enjoy stitching by hand when I watch tv.

    Great Job from one scrappy quilter to another.. it looks great... :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I thought it looked better layed out on the floor before I put it together. But the more I look at it now. And after reading all these wonderful comments. I must say I like it more and more.

    It feels like the quilts of long ago. I love it! Just finished piecing my first scrap quilt. Understand how you have to let the thing grow on you. Truly, it's a great little piece. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree and I also like it. The real question is "Is it warm?"

    I would call this quilt Spontaneous Cumbustion. It has so much energy and life. I love lots of red. Great quilt.

    I love the quilt and you did a very good job. Quilting with your machine isn't that hard. Just try it on a small project like a placemat or table runner.
