The scrappier the better


I made this quilt in a flurry of cutting and sewing back in early January due to the #scrappytripalong frenzy over on Instagram. 

It might be my most favorite quilt yet.

That looks fab with the dark lines highlighting the diamonds!

So....where is the one with the strips you sewed at Sew South!:)
