Scrappy Trip Along

The bright side of having hubby away last week was lots of time for sewing. A couple evenings of quilting and a few movies while hand-stitching the binding, and my Scrappy Trip Along quilt was finished!

This quilt was so much fun to put together! At least 75% of the pieces came from my scrap baskets... I could have made the whole thing from scraps, but I didn't want to repeat any of the strips, so I cut into some fat quarters for a couple of the blocks.

I was having trouble deciding on a backing fabric, so the people who live in my phone (AKA Instagram) helped me pick this one, and it is perfect!

Wow!  You really can tell how strong our Winter sun has been here in Texas... the above 2 pictures are of the same section of the quilt... the top one taken inside, and the bottom one outside.

That's so pretty and such a good way to use up strips.

I love your quilt! I only have 20 blocks of mine done and I'm making it oversized king, so I need 80 more blocks!
