End of Summer Holidays

School started on Wednesday and after a last sleep over on Tuesday the entire family have resumed normal routines.   Work  school  dance lessons  karate
  
AND

  Quilting Group resumes on Monday. I am so looking forward to resuming my regular routine. Knowing that quilting is on Monday and Tuesday is so good. Sharing and laughing with like minded women is a bright spot in my week.

BUT

I have a quilters confession yup I couldn't resist


lots of 2 1/2" strips ready for the Scrappy Trip Around the World blooming all over blog land. I'm thinking a quick stitch fix in between chores and other delights.

I know what about the UFO's but this culls some more bits from the stash. And most of them are old enough to be vintage. Well almost.

Lots of rain so an indoor slow weekend ahead. Enjoy your weekend and stop in and tell what your up to

So did you stitch together lots of 2 1/2 inch strips to make long ones? i've been thinking of doing something like that for this lot of comfort quilts. Please tell?

I like your thinking on these scrappy trip blocks. I should be working on UFOs, but I just couldn't resist making a couple. I like how you have put your strips into rolls.

Happy new school year for everyone from me. Enjoy your quilting with friends. I miss that so very much. Looking forwards to see your 'Trip'. mine Japanese fabric version of 'Trip' is fun to make. Are you using Bonnie Hunter's technique? I want to make one in scraps too - Have a great week - Hugs Nat
