Every year I try to make a Christmas quilt or wall hanging. After making and falling in love with my scrappy Trip Around the World quilt at the beginning of this year, I knew I wanted to make a scrappy Christmas Trip Around the World quilt. And I knew right from the beginning that the flannel hounds tooth print from Bonnie & Camille’s Vintage Modern line would be the back (I’d been saving this fabric for a Christmas quilt back for a while).
My scrappy Christmas quilt measures 60″ x 72″ and is made up of 30 blocks. I actually only had to make 9 of the blocks because I cut up strips and sent them to my quilting Bee ladies; I had 21 blocks returned to me! Some of the Bee ladies even added fabrics that I didn’t have. It was incredible…Christmas collections I’d loved but missed out on came back to me in some of the blocks.
I think I love this scrappy quilt even more than my first scrappy trip around the world quilt.
It was really hard to piece the last block last night. I might have been having withdrawals from working on this project!
Now I think I might need to make a Scrappy Trip quilt every year. Maybe I can come up with a different theme for each year?
Because this quilt was just too much fun!
I used the Bonnie Hunter method for my blocks that you can find here.
I’ve already got an appointment for this to be quilted…before Christmas even…yay!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
