Scrappy Trips Around the World Done (first one)

53 comments
It has taken me forever to make this post.  Blogger seems so messed up today.  And today is the first day of no Google Reader (:-()
I have hand stitched the binding on this quilt for weeks so I'm really glad to finish it.  It is 96X96 so you can see why it has taken solong. We aren't exactly having hand binding weather around here.  We are having a heat wave of 100+.
I know so many bloggers made the scappy trips quilt so it may be boring to look at mine.  But I'm proud of it.
I'm going to put this quilt on the upstairs guest bed.  I think it makes a neutral quilt for an extra room.
I tried to balance out light and darker or medium value fabrics so the trips were somewhat obvious, even  though they are unplanned and scrappy.
I used a blue backing with a red binding.  This is the type of quilt I love.  There is so many fun fabrics to look at and enjoy.  I'm working on binding my other scrappy trips quilt.

Love it. I like the light colors. My scrappy trip has very dark colors. I really like the backing. Perfect!

I love it Nanette! Your fabrics, even the scraps, are always so happy and bright. This Scrappy Trips looks very vintage. Just lovely!

Oh, I just love the softness of this Trip quilt - so different from all the others I have been seeing. Just love it - and love the backing fabric too.

I love it, too, Nedra - hey, you've got a fabulous stash to work with. You are tempting me again, lol!

This quilt is anything but boring. I love it! I really like the way it feels like a scrappy quilt, but the way you've used the color values in it make the pattern really pop.
Wait, did you say another scrappy trips quilt?! I can't wait to see that one too!

Sheila said...

I love your quilt, Freda. The lights and whites make it look softer. So many possibilities with this pattern. And each quilts using this pattern is so interesting, colorful and wonderful.

jan said...

I am so jealous yours is finished. I have my flimsy but haven't found the backing I want to use yet!
I love the way yours tuned out! Love it! My is 84x84. That's another reason it's not finished yet! lol

Not even close to being tired of seeing these - I've got three of my own now! Well, not exactly completely scrappy, but scrappy enough for me.
Lovely job! Can't wait to see the next one you've got!

PamKittyMorning said...

OMG I love this so much. I haven't made one of these, mostly out of laziness. I love how wonderful they all are. I wish the cutting elves would come over and cut me a bunch of strips. That would help.
