My scrappy trip around the world is a finished top! I LOVE this quilt. I had so much fun sewing the blocks together the other night. At first I was just going to sew a couple of rows, but you know how that goes...it really wasn't taking that long so I decided to finish it up!
Here are blocks 29 - 32...the group above is one of my favorite sets.
And here are blocks 33-36!
The finished top takes up most of the sewing room floor! It measures 72 1/2'' x 72 1/2'' right now.
As I was setting the blocks and rows together I had fun looking at each and every fabric. Some of these fabrics have already been included in cherished quilts, some will shortly be used in projects, and others are ones that I've been afraid to cut into until now!
Now I have to decide what to use for backing. I don't think I have anything on hand, so I want to buy the perfect fabric. I'm also still thinking about quilting this myself. If I do, it will be the biggest quilt I've quilted on my own, so I'm not sure. But this is definitely going to be one of those "wash for the crinkly look" and "use it all the time" quilts, so it will be okay if the quilting isn't perfect!
The tutorial I used for this quilt can be found here:
Thanks so much for following along on the journey of this quilt! Have a wonderful day!
