    If you like bright colors, you should like the top my great grandma did. It's currently in a chest because I have yet to find the perfect backing for it. She working in a sewing mill so she got a lot of scraps. It fits a queen by the way.

    But everyone has such beautiful quilts and I decided I need to finish at least 4 quilts before I start another one. Guess I better get moving!

    my camera isn't the best so the lighting looks kind of wierd. But you get the point of how bright it is!

    Great quilts, everyone.

    Don't have a picture, but one of my scrappies is a string quilt from a swap. DD, who is 20, was ill recently and when she got to the point where she was feeling well enough to lay on the couch, but not well enough to do much of anything, had fun looking at all the different fabrics. There are chickens, stars, cows, every color imaginable, flags, dogs, boats... I thought "I Spy" quilts were for little ones, but at 20, she loved it!

    Everyone--thanks for so many more ideas! I never knew scrappy quilts could be so stunning!
    I was very taken by that quilt also. Is there a pattern name you can share with us?
