“Scrappy Trip Around the World”
Last Sunday I had special guests at my table. Sheila and Sanford came to Delaware for the day bringing Mother and my sister Coleen (who was up from Ga. visiting mother in Va.) and my sister Barbara. Sorry Babs I didn’t get a pic. of you. They came especially to hear Ken K. share the Sunday evening program on his journey this past year having cancer.
My two mother’s enjoying conversation.
Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of this quilt pattern floating around on the web. I give credit to Bonnie Hunter who posted the pattern. If you google Bonnie Hunter Scrappy trip around the world and click on images you will see lots and lots of versions.
It’s really a fun pattern. I first cut lots of 2 inch strips from a color pallet of another quilt that I liked.
It’s not matchy, matchy but I’m just experimenting and trying to step out of the box.
(trying to be brave here)
One thing that helps is to have some good friends to sew with. Queena, Wava and Delores came and joined me for the day.
Poor Wava was given instructions from her man that she first needed to patch a pair of jeans before she could start on her sewing project.
We decided to eat our salad lunch out on the porch but about froze.
We came inside before we were done.
Great day sewing with you girls. Thanks.
After sewing 8 strips together you cut the strada in 8 2inch pieces and join them in a block.
Last evening I needed to cut more strips so I put “Duck Dynasty” on while cutting and sewing into the night.
While Mark is literally on a trip around the world how fitting that I should be making a quilt called “Trip Around the World”
He’ll soon be home and I hope to fill you in on some more details.
