    really scrappy quilt

    I made this using scraps just pulled from a bin. There was no measuring until the final block. Not sure I like it but used a few scraps up.

    I love the radianting fans quilting! Did you do it FMQ? Would love to know how. I love scrappy quilts so it is a winner to me!
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    The fact that you used only strips and didn't "regulate" them comes out as a organized whole of a quilt! It is really a nice quilt! I understand the hesitation of whether you like it or not, but leave it around on the back of a chair on someplace for a few days and I bet you'll really come to like it. It harks back to what quilts started out being: practicality turned into beauty!

    especially since you quilted it with a traditional pattern, the Babtist Fan. Very nice!

    Very pretty and quilting also. It is amazing no matter how many scraps you have it seems impossible to use them up. I made seven scrappy quilts and still had a ton left.

    It looks wonderful to me--I love scrappy quilts! I love the quilting--I must learn to do the Baptist Fans. Did you machine quilt it or are they hand quilted--I can't tell from the photo.

    I love it. Looking at it reminds me of buildings=skyscrapers in a big city. I think that you will like it in time.

    I like it. It has a sort of a modern look, kind of looks like a city scape.

    I think it's great! Sometimes we fret and over think these quilts. Our great-grandmas didn't have time for that. Have scraps, make a quilt, get it on a bed and keep a body warm. Yours has the bonus of being lovely. It's a keeper.
