What I'm Working on Wednesday




So...it's probably no surprise what I'm working on today...



I sewed 8 strip sets together on Monday, and today I'll be making Scrappy Trip Around the World Blocks.




I love every block, but these two strip sets are definitely my favorite out of this batch! After I stitch these up, I'll have 20 blocks completed with 16 to go. If I cut 80 medium/dark strips and 16 light strips I'll be ready for a marathon strip piecing session.

Also, I've only repeated two fabrics so far. They are two of my favorites, so I'm not going to worry about it. Since they are favorites they deserve to be represented twice, right?! One is an Amy Butler print, and one is a polka dot by Bonnie and Camille. Both are aqua...go figure!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
