I have a quilt that for the longest time I thought my mamaw made, but I recently found out it's something she bought from a garage sale. It's really crappy and not technically/aestheticly pleasing, but I love it.

The back side is large pieces of flannel. The inside is of course some kind of batting. The top side is just bits of fabric scraps from this and that - flannel, cord, 70s polyester print, just leftover clothing cut up I assume. It is connected with yarn tied in the middle of each square. It is not "quilted" in the sense that it's put together and sewn through all the layers.

Is there a certain name for this type of quilt, and do you know where I can find a how-to? I would love to try something like this sometime, as the quilt I have is starting to fall apart. I feel like it has lots of character and I just LOVE it. (I can post pics later if that'd help.)
