Cheddar Bow Ties -- My favorite kind of quilt!

I thought last week was the big reveal for Jo's Quiltville Challenge. Turns out that I had another week to get my binding on, so here it is again, all bound and ready to snuggle under! 


This is my absolute favorite kind of scrap quilt, the one where you get to use everything from the scrap bag as long as it's halfway decent quality. (And sometimes if it's less decent, if the color or print is exciting enough.)

I've got lobsters....


and geese and seahorses and the hind end of a Dalmation....


Halloween words and tea pots and teacups....


And spiderwebs and plaids and a zillion different kinds of flowers. It's like an I Spy for grownups!

Love your quilt, scrap quilts are so much fun. I have just sorted and cut all my scraps into organized sizes, having fun now making a scrap basket quilt.

I still need to quilt mine. I have a few novelties in it too. I loved playing I spy with my Celtic Solstice over the Thanksgiving holiday with my Grandchildren. Congrats on the great Finish. I thought last week was the final Link-up too.

It's wonderful Michelle!! It's my favorite kind too!

I also love quilts where 'anything goes' and there's so much to look at once the quilt is finished. Planned quilts made from yardgae of four or five fabrics = boring in my view!

I'm so inspired! I need to make a scrap quilt. Or two. Or twenty. What a great use of your very fun scraps. I like the idea of an adult I-spy quilt!
