blogland has sent me tripping.........
i have been sucked into the super fun latest blogland/twitter/instagram/flickr craze.
scrappy trip around the world quilt
i first caught wind of this on twitter which lead me to various blogs and finally to the flickr page for it. once i saw all of those pictures there was no turning back for me. i wanted to make this quilt and i already had the perfect fabric for it.
somewhere in my past i had won a set of fat eights of Denyse Schmidt's Katie Jump Rope and i had also won some fat quarters of Denyse's Flea Market Fancy.
two lines of fabric that go very well together. i know its a scrappy quilt but i can't let go of that much control. for those of you that know me you understand.
it has been a very therapeutic process for me. sewing the strip sets together. cutting them up. unsewing them. sewing them back together.
i have 28 blocks done and the last 8 are almost finished. i will decide on the final layout once all of the blocks are made.
thanks to blogland for providing me with a much needed fun project.
