I got an Accuquilt cutter and started cutting up scraps into hexagons.  It seemed like a good project for those winter evenings in front of the tv.  I like to have something to do; I can't just sit there!  As you can see, it is growing.  My husband saw it the other day and commented that he thought I was making a lap quilt. No, no....TOO many scraps for that!  I'm working on a queen-sized quilt!

My grandmother used to do that although she'd make them into the Grandmother's Flower Garden pattern and she would do it all by hand. No paper piecing, either. As kids, we'd all have fun trying to pick out which fabrics had been our clothes! We did that until her eyesight got too bad. She had a cardboard template and she'd cut them out and sit & stitch them all together in the evenings. Thanks for sharing with us, yours looks "fun".

I love my accuquilt cutter also - but I haven't used it for anything fancy yet.  Love your quilt (I love scrappy quilts).
