Jon and I were driving home early Sunday afternoon and an idea got stuck in my head. Not unusual (it’s cluttered in there), but I couldn’t let it go. Once the laundry was going and the produce sorted and the picking up done, I shut myself in the sewing room.
It started with 1″ x 7″ strips (72 of them), then stitching and cutting and stitching again.
I can honestly say these took about the same amount of time as the original blocks. But it was worth it. Twelve itty-bitty blocks later, and my precious mid-century modern Mattel bed has a real quilt. Even better, it’s a Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt.
It’s 9″x12″ and it makes me smile every time I look at it, although “Scrappy Trip Around the Block” seems like a more appropriate name.
Add a little whimsy to your day ~ I promise it helps!!
