Scrappy Trip Around the World





Finally a finished quilt!

Free tutorial here.

I added a row of scrappy stars on one side because I wanted it a bit wider.  Used a twin sized Target sheet on the back.

Did a scallopy free motion quilt design which was a lot of fun to quilt, and I like the finished look.  Softens and rounds out all the squares.

I love all these colors in these quilt, but it seems like just a bit much to me!  I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep it or sell it.  My little girl Claire has claimed it for the moment though, so it may just end up staying here!
