You guys are the best, I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes a no rules project and I hope you all give it a try! It was really a lot less intimidating once I started cutting things up and just went for it. Smiley

This whole process, from start to finish, only took me an afternoon. I'm starting to build my stash back up so I can make another one. I'd like to make it larger, but am not fond of the thought of hand quilting it since this one was as large as my machine can handle.  Lips sealed

Good job and you look great in that last pic. X
Thank you! Kiss

Ah, to be sitting on a quilt soaking up the sun on the grass right now (she types shivering). This is wonderful and inspiring, if I just put away my perfectionism I could have a quilt in no time flat, thanks!   Cheesy

I LOVE it! Seriously! and I have a crapload of fat quarters, what a great project for them all!!! I should get busy and make something! I also used to have your sewing machine, but I upgraded to an AWESOME one, which I have made nothing with! Shame on me!

Good job for getting your act together, and making a cool quilt!!

Love it!

Generations of women (and some men) have made beautiful quilts with nothing but material, needle and thread. Don't get hyper over not having all the fun gadgets - they make it easier but are just tools toys  Wink .

This is great! And that's how I sew too, very impatiently. Your colors look great together.
