Finally Finished

Scrappy Trip Around the World

I started this about 18 months ago when the craze hit the blogging world.  It returned from the long arm quilter last week and the binding went on yesterday.

The 2 1/2"strips are all from the stash. I'd cut myself a scrappy jelly roll and these were some leftovers.

My stash is bordering on vintage or perhaps that's just a way of saying I save (hoard) any scrap that comes my way.

Whatever..... my first memory of a quilt is a scrappy split 4patch. My mother and I lived with Grandma while my father was in the Korean War.  Instead of sleeping for nap time I would trace my fingers along the quilting lines.

  I know nothing more about the quilt or what happened to it. All that remaines are a three year old's memories of colored triangles. Lots and lots of colors.

Just love the unexpected results of "scrappy".

Spring has arrived in a big way. Enjoy
