Some of you may remember that I made a Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt a few years ago as a wedding present for friends, and another one for a friend’s baby. The larger quilt was queen size: here it’s being held up by my father (6’4″) who is standing on a chair: The smaller … Continue reading Scrappy Trip Around The World, take three
I’ve really been enjoying the Scrappy Trip-Along quilt, especially seeing all the other pictures in the flickr group — it’s great to see the different color and fabric choices!

This is the Henrietta Turtle by Heather Bailey, made from scraps from the Mixtape quilt I posted about on Wednesday. The little boy I’m making the mixtape quilt for … Continue reading Henrietta Turtle
