i love scrappy quilts! i also like how you tied it...it makes it look vintage-y...my great grandma tied her quilts a lot. it looks really awesome...have fun snuggling up with it!
Yeah thats where I got the idea, my great grandmas quilts.  She always tied them too.  Plus its alot easier than quilting it!  Wink

Your quilt is very appealing and makes me want to use up some of my fabrics before they take over my whole house. I can't seem to stop buying fabrics.

That is really great!  You must've had SOME stash!  And I second whoever said it...you definitely can't go wrong with cow print!  Great job!

I love scrap quilts. Looking at this I'm not sure I would classify you as a beginner. Maybe all that scrappiness hides oopsies.
Look for books of scrap quilts or fast and quick quilts. I usually look at the magazines at Walmart and JoAnn's. One of my faves is Quiltmaker. Fons and Porter have a book I really like but I'm not sure of availability.

Looking forward to seeing your next.
