The Scrappy Trips Around the World is finished! Thank you to Bonnie Hunter for another great free pattern. I really, really like this quilt, even though it's not perfect. (Although I have it on good authority that there is no such thing as a perfect quilt!)
My friend Phyllis (who by the way celebrated with her husband on Thursday their sixtieth wedding anniversary! What an accomplishment.) sewed together many sets of two inch strips for me. This was definitely another cooperative quilt. I love that!
The pictures are just as I finished quilting it. I did a very simple wavy line all over. Just an idea I had, but it turned out pretty well! The Southwest themed fabric I used for the backing is from my friend Deb! Yes, more cooperativeness.
Here it is - front, backing, and binding. I'm not sure exactly where this one is going yet, but I will soon!
Today I've been playing around with half square triangles. I cut these with the 4 1/2 inch half square triangle die on my Go! Cutter a while back. I need to cut more before I can get very far.
But this is what I've put up on the design wall so far. For the first time in a long time I do not have unfinished projects screaming at me. It's a wonderful feeling, so wonderful that as you can see I immediately started something new! Aren't we funny!
It is cold (for me) here today and tonight, but it was so wonderful to see a beautiful clear blue, sunny sky today! Makes you glad to be alive.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and finding plenty to make you happy!
Hugs and kisses,
