Work In Progress Week 4

I've made a couple quilts before.  Quilts take a lot of time and a lot of patience.  There are a lot of pieces involved and each small piece needs to be placed precisely... it's just a long process.  It's definitely not one of my favorite crafts; regardless, I do it anyway.  I made this quilt a couple years ago:

It took me about 6 months (It doesn't take everyone that long).  But I LOVE IT.  I think it's the greatest thing on earth, and probably my very favorite thing that I have made. Ever.  It's a scrap quilt and that is one of the best things about it.  I paid about $20 for everything (I had to buy fabric for the backing, batting, and thread for quilting).  That's insane! Quilting is a very expensive hobby.  So once I finished this scrap quilt I HAD to start another one... or two... or three.  Let's start with one...  

Already it's not coming together like I had hoped, but honestly, neither did the last one and I'm crazy about it now, so I'll just keep moving forward on this bad boy until it's done.
