This is the block I made for Janet. She wanted a scrappy trips around the world block. She said she wanted bright happy mix of solids and prints (I don't have much in the way of solids).
I was able to go through my 2.5" bin and pull out some bright fabrics
After sewing the long strips I cut them at 2.5" and then seam ripped one seam. And this is what I came up with:
Now I haven't made one of these quilts, I have been "scared" to, wondering how it would turn out. But this was fairly easy. So I think I might end up making one of these!! But it will be on my long list of quilts I want to make. I think this is the second quilt block I have done for block swap adventure that I have wanted to make myself!!! This swap is becoming dangerous ;)
I had some extra strips so I made this block for me. I guess I am one step done to making myself a scrappy trips around the world quilt :)
And here is the adorable kitty she sent me. (The background isn't that pink!)
