Scrap quilt or art quilt?

I flattened out the vintage scrap quilt top that I got the other day. I did very minimal repair work.  I took out a few pieces that were made from undershirt material and replaced them, and I pressed and re sewed a few of the seams, but for the most part I left it as it was.  When I look at it hanging up it seems to me that it is more than just a bunch of scraps…Id call it art, but then perhaps I am biased.

I will do some quilting on it soon
