Confessions of a fabric hoarder

Scrappy Trip-Around-the-World…FINALLY!

1 Comment

Hey! It’s Greg, again. I had to post because I FINALLY FINISHED SOMETHING! And, of course, Benny had to check it out…

A couple of years ago, several of the modern quilt blogs had a “scrappy trip-around-the-world sew along” and I was in love with the look of the quilts. I was going to school at the time, so I couldn’t participate. But, I decided I would make the quilt someday. Well, that day has arrived! There are 288 different fabrics in the quilt…none are repeated. Since it only took a 2 1/2″ X 16 1/2″ strip of each fabric, it was easy to use up scraps. I made it with the “tube” method…I’m hoping to talk Griff into putting up a tutorial for it. Until then, I used this tutorial from Quiltville, which was perfectly fine. Now, it’s off to the long-arm quilter…

Take care and I’ll be back soon!
