Scrappy Trip Around the World

I have been feeling like a quilty ping pong ball  bouncing from one project to another without end.  So I had a serious talk with myself – “Self, you need to stop bouncing around and finish some of the projects that you have started”.  It seems to have helped because I feel more settled and ready to focus on endings, not just beginnings.

The first project to be completed to the quilt top stage is the Scrappy Trip Around the World (directions by the wonderful Bonnie Hunter).

040213    (764x1024)The setting for this quilt is 5 x 6 with a narrow inner border so the final measurements will be 60ish” x 72ish”.   This is the third quilt that I have made using this pattern, but the first with no outer border.  I have decided that I prefer the outer border to corral all the colors, so this will be one of a kind.

When this quilt top is finished I will be machine quilting Hot Flashes for a birthday present and piecing Autumn Rings n’ Things.

I hope that I can continue with this mind set, but it will be sorely tested next month at the Denver Quilt Show.  I always want to start 5 or 20 new projects after the show.

Happy Wednesday to everyone.
