my 1st finish of 2013.....
my Scrappy Trip Around The World quilt. i first blogged about it here and i am very happy to say it is done. not the whole quilt just the top but that alone feels GREAT!!!!
when i started this quilt i was just using Flea Market Fancy but then figured i would need some more fabric to make the size i wanted. so i busted into my Katie Jump Rope stash.
i (as randomly as possible) put strip sets of 6 together. sewed them up. cut them apart.
unsewed. and finally sewed the blocks together.
i started this at the end of December and i had 3 blocks done before i had to leave on a trip.
once back from my trip i got back to sewing, cutting, unsewing and then sewing again.
my stack of blocks grew.
and fairly quickly i had them all made and laid out and
the rows sewed together.
and the quilt top finished.
i am very happy with this quilt. i love, love, love how scrappy it is. i also love the pops of dark in the quilt. i think i did a decent job of scattering them throughout the top.
i am pretty dang happy with my first finish of 2013. completed in under a month from cutting to a finished top.
tonight i will work on the backing which will be scrappy as well and then i will see about the quilting. i might do this one myself. thinking that a bunch of swirls would look good on it.
