    scrappy - my favorite kind of quilt - and this one is no different... LOVE it! but I cannot imagine hand sewing all of the strips... that makes my fingers cramp just thinking about it.

    I can't imagine doing it by hand either. It looks like a carefully tended family heirloom. Great work.

    I think scrappy is my favorite type of quilt. I really like the effect and this one is no exception. Hand sewing all of that, my goodness!

    This is a true quilt. Made from scraps not the fancy stuff from the quilt stores. Great job, love it.
