The Blogger's Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy started Friday and I'm just a little late to the party. I really wanted to show you my finished "Scrappy String," but I just didn't have time to get it finished. Instead, I'm going to show you a Trip Around the World quilt that I finished this year. I love this quilt and I love how well the fabrics blended when it was finished. The not knowing what it will look like when finished is really the fun part of this quilt.
I used 2 1/2 strips and 24 different fabrics.
These two fabrics were my inspiration...
I started it in January of 2011 and finished it in January of 2012.
As you can see from the variation in the photos, I've had a terrible time getting some good shots of this quilt. I've been trying since I finished it in February...I've been carrying it around in the car looking for good locations and lighting...and I just haven't been able to get any that I really like.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my quilt. If you haven't made a "Trip" yet, I encourage you to try it. It's a great learning quilt for color and combining fabrics and it's just a lot of FUN!!
