This is another finish from the winter that I haven’t shared yet. It’s my version of a Scrappy Trip Around The World. You can find Bonnie Hunter’s (Quiltville) original tutorial here. I used a lot of low volume scraps for my version, and because the fabrics were all similar in value I didn’t get a strong diagonal effect. Nonetheless I was completely happy with this little quilt (12 blocks for 36″ x 48″). It is backed with snuggly fleece, and quilted by Joan Read in an all-over bubble pattern. All that white reminds me of winter here in Ottawa, which is a welcome memory in the midst of this week’s heat wave.
I thought Life in the Jungle from Doohikey Designs would make a cute scrappy trips You will need to cut each Rolie Polie strip into 3 equal lengths, and then cut another 6 strips (2.5″ x 14″) from the additional yardage for a total of 72 strips. It’s enough to make 12 blocks for a small quilt (36″ x 48″). I’ve put together a kit including the Rolie Polie, additional yardage for blocks and binding, and a flannel backing (grey polka dot).
Even better, it’s on sale now in the shop.
