This quilt was made with the help of a few of my friends.
We started it a few months ago
and I finished it up last week.
It will soon be headed to Margaret's Hope Chest
I hope & pray that it brings someone comfort and HOPE!
It was made from strings from my bottomless scrap basket. :)
It measures 48" x 60".
I've decided that I've never met a scrap quilt I didn't like.
Shocking, isn't it?
Happy Monday to you!
I love scrap quilts. All the colours to explore and textures and prints. Someone will be very happy with this quilt.
That's really lovely :)
It's a great quilt! I love scrap quilts. Why use 5 fabrics when you can use 55!
Great way to use up scraps. I am SURE it will bring someone some comfort.
It is wonderful and I know will be treasured!
It's beautiful, Amandajean - scrappy and for a good cause! I'm sure its new owner will find it both beautiful and comforting!! Merry Christmas!
Looks fantastic. Very funny perspective with the trees behind, makes the quilt look like it must be enormous :-)
What a great gift! Lovely quilt as always! I love reading your blog, in fact, I get so excited when you have a new post, it makes my day!
Yep, scrap quilts are definitely the best. That one is a beauty.
Hello, inspiration! My string bin is jammed full but I just can't bring myself to start another string quilt or spiderweb type project. This seems way less stressful -- and just as beautiful :)
Beautiful Amanda,I'm sure your quilt will bring comfort,hope and JOY!!! You have some great looking scraps!!
It's beautiful and will surely bring someone comfort and HOPE! YAY for you!
Beautiful ! I have never met a scrap quilt I did not like either, lol.
I love it and what a great organization to give to! I really enjoy your work.
Scraps.......aren't they great!
You've done a wonderful thing giving this give of love.
Happy Sewing and Merry Christmas
Scrap quilts are the best because there's always something new to see in them. :)
I feel the same about scrap quilts.
Looks great! I just finished piecing the blocks for my first real scrap quilt and already have plans for my second.
Love that quilt! And I love Char's comment above - why use 5 fabrics when you can use 55? So true!!
What a cool quilt! I love these kinds of collaborative quilts, especially for such a great charity! Such a fabulous way to use strip scraps too.
I love this quilt and how you used your strings. Did you sew them onto paper? Beryl
I agree, can't say I've ever seen an "ugly" scrap quilt either.
I love these kind of blocks too.
I have never saw a scrap quilt of any design that I haven't liked...I love patchwork quilts. Merry Christmas Trish
I love it and am sure it will brighten someones day and bring them comfort.
It is a beautiful bright quilt and it will cheer up anyone who receives it.
What a great assortment of fabrics! I could get lost for hours just enjoying them all.
I love the string/scrap quilt. Do you have a tutorial on that one? It doesn't look hard but if anyone could mess it up it would be me. I just might have to have a go at it. Yours is beautiful.
I love scrap quilts and you really make some beautiful ones!!!

Love it, love it, love it. I bow to you and your scrappiness. Please let some of it rub off on me, will you? I swear, nothing in my scrap basket goes together!
