About two years.  Yes, this WIP was started a mere two years ago.  And yes, I planned on it taking that long. 
For me, paper piecing this scrap quilt was easy mindless sewing, just what you need somedays.  I like having a long project like this just for those times.  There are so many scraps on this quilt -- which for me, are memories of all the projects created with the fabric. There are friends scraps in here as well, but only from times that we were sewing together.  Here she is in all her glory....okay, hanging on the wall might not be her most glorious spot!
  For quilting I did a simple straight line following white fabric. The back of the quilt is white minky 
and it is machine bound with a raspberry floral.


And just so you know 

even a quilt can get
photo bombed.

Absolutely stunning! I love the scrappiness, and the white keeps everything organized. I'm a relatively new quilter, and I can't wait to build up enough scraps to do something like this. Actually that's not quite true... I'm making a quilt now from "manufactured" scraps, lol.

Gorgeous! I love the chaos of all the colours.
I need to start doing something with all my scraps... before they take over my studio :)
