    This is a photo of the front of my king size rag quilt. I used recycled denim jeans for the foundation squares. I decided to put all the rag seams to the back and the outside edges. It weighs 15 lbs.

    It's wonderful--warm too probably! Thanks for sharing. This goes to show you that there is no such thing as non-usable scraps!

    Very pretty, I hope your washing machine is large enough to wash it in.
    I have a book on making string quilts and hope to make one soon.

    LOL! Nope. I have to take it to the laundromat where they have an oversized front loader.

    I may be one of the few people left who can say this - but my very, very favorite quilts are scrap quilts. I love traditional. This is great and I know you are going to really enjoy it.

    That is so pretty. I love the scrappy design. It does look very warm and cuddly. What a great quilt to snuggle under. Great job and thanks for sharing.
