Quilting: Scrappy Trip Around The World
If you haven't figured it out, I'm an InstaGram junkie lately...even my husband comments that I can't put it down.
And on InstaGram there have been lots and lots of quilters starting out the New Year making a Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt...simple, colorful, and uses up your scraps/stash...seamed perfect to me.
So I went to my stash to pull a few things out...and instead of scraps came out with two old jelly rolls...colorful and bright...just what the cold, rainy days here in Southern California needed.
However, there was no backing fabric anywhere near those colors in my stash...nor was there anything close to a binding fabric...those colors were a bit out of my colorway back then.
Scoured the internet for a bit provided some yardage, but I will be doing the scrappy back as I only found enough for the binding and two pillowcases with a bit left over for the back.
Scrappy Hearts...check! Wait...how did that get in here?
Can you say unexpected inspiration? Valentine's Day block + Pellon's Quilter Grid made it easy to put together...thinking either a pincushion or a throw pillow...haven't decided yet.
Now that everything's settled I'll start working on the quilt blocks...want to join in?
