Just a brief teaser: this is a small-scale look at what the back of my scrappy trip quilt will look like. I’ll be doing 7×7 12″ squares on the back, in imitation of the scrappy trip blocks. Of course, the cat just had to help: Happy (early) President’s Day and happy Sunday! Continue reading Sunday Something
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!

The Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt has been flying around, and I’m afraid I caught the bug big-time. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out photographs on the flickr … Continue reading Scrappy Trip-Along
New Wave quilt: I’m using the Sunday Best bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics, but I replaced the two white prints with blue and grey, because I didn’t want white tumblers framed by white sashing. (I promise, those ones that look white are actually light blue or light grey: I can’t find my real camera, and … Continue reading WiP Wednesday, January 2013
