I'm really quite late, but I finally jumped on the Scrap Vomit bandwagon......

I can't remember exactly where I first saw the "Scrap Vomit" quilt.  It might have been here.  After seeing that one, I found lots more online... like here.  I found the tutorial on "I'm a Ginger Monkey's" blog, here...  
Well, I finished my Scrap Vomit top this morning.  I think maybe I tried to use up too many of my uglies at all once...

I'm not loving it.  I think it actually looks better in this picture than it does in person.  Maybe it just needs to grow on me.  This quilt will be a wedding gift for my daughter-in-law's sister.  The wedding is in July, so I'm hoping that leaves me plenty of time for the quilter to work her magic.....I decided it's probably best if I don't share the name of this quilt with the bride and groom.  :)

Charlie went to the dog groomer yesterday.  His friend Ozzie (Julie's dog) had the appointment right after Charlie's.  Between Ozzie and Charlie, she cut/shaved off a lot of hair.  I wonder what she does with all that??  Anyhow, Charlie was pretty tired out when we got home.  I tried to take his picture, but he wasn't cooperating.  This was the best I could do......
Now we just need some warm weather!

It looks like a warm, comfy, bed quilt. Thank you for sharing a picture and links to the journey.

I like it. And it probably is one of those that will grow on you. I have one made with 4" squares years ago that I still enjoy seeing.

I like the scrappiness of it. Since you don't love it, it will be easier to give it away anyway. Is that bad to think that way?
I am saving all those neck ties they put on the groomed dogs. I figure he needs a quilt for when I have all his hair clipped off and he feels so bare.

I am very picky about my own scrap quilts because of slight o.c.d. But when I see everyone else's scrap quilts they look awesome! Plus, quilts are made with love and love isn't ugly, ever. :)
