    Here is my scrap twist quilt. It is a queen size and there are 200 different fabrics in it. Most of the fabric was from an auction that I posted pics of a few months ago. I sent it out to be quilted and I just finished putting on the binding. It is only my second attempt at binding and I'm getting better at it. It is still not perfect but oh well. This is for our bed. I finally got around to making something for us to use. Our room is RWB so I put a RWB borders on it to help tie it in a little.

    I am so impressed with your quilt, wow. Did you have that many scraps or did you have to use some of your stash?

    I went to an auction a couple of months ago and bought 8 big boxes of fabric. Alot of it was small pieces. I did use some of my own but most of it was auction fabric. I went to this auction a couple of days before Shadow posted her first scrap buster. When I saw it I knew that was what I wanted to make first. This was my first scrappy quilt.

    cc Barb - I love it! You did a super job! The r w b sashings tie it all in for your room - great idea. I have trouble deciding on sashings and backings some times. YOU did a super job!!! You should be able to enjoy if for many years.

    What a nice job you did Barb. I still only have one block made for mine. I too have a fair amount of trouble with the binding. GOOD JOB! Do you know the name of the pantograph the quilter used. I think I like it.

    I must say after looking at your quilt I have been inspired to save my scraps for a quilt.

    I don't know the name of the pantograph Sorry. I know that she has a very very old machine and only a small number of designs to pick from.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. Like I said I finally made this one for myself. I can't wait to be able to sleep under my own quilt. Thanks again.
