This is a scrappy quilt made mostly from fabrics I gathered in Obnoxious Fabric swaps that I host on another site.



It is 76" X 92" and my girls tell me I should call it No Thanks, YOU Take It as they look at it and see all the weird fabrics in it, rather than the nice design that the traditional Arkansas Crossroads blocks make.



The color is off a bit in the full shot, the detail shows the colors more as they are - bright!

Oh wow!!! I love it! I have a thing for scrap quilts... I've asked my grandma to make my wedding quilt a scrap one lol (when i got engaged she asked what we'd like, as she makes each grand kid a quilt for when they get married lol)

That's awesome!  I love how all the obnoxious fabrics together make a pretty quilt.

I think it is beautiful.  And that is why there are so many different fabric choices, because everyone likes different things.  Wouldn't life be boring if all we had to choose from was 2 or 3 fabrics!

I so agree with this Smiley This quilt is made up of fun fabrics, though someone found many of them to be obnoxious, I laugh when I come across some of them (they are much nicer cut up SMALL).

That's gorgeous!  I'm always amazed when truly terrible fabrics look so good when cut up small.  Smiley

Beautiful quilt.  Just love the contrast between the brights and the white background fabric.

Amazing work! The tiny bits of loud patterns come together to something so pretty! Love it.

I forgot who said it (Bonnie Hunter, maybe?), but if a fabric is still ugly then it just hasn't been cut small enough.  I'm sure as yardage some of those were scary, but in a scrappy quilt like this they're wonderful.  Bravo!
