Yesterday I did 4 more Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks for a total of 12. Here they are (not sewn together). I don't want to sew it together yet. We have all the small tone-on-tone chevrons coming from Riley Blake and they are the colors I love so I want to incorporate them into this quilt.
This is a really fun quilt that's ultra-fast and easy. I also worked on some paper piecing but didn't even get one block completed. They are difficult patterns that are not for sissy girls! Well, difficult for me that is. I could never attempt these quilts without paper piecing. I like to do a couple of blocks a week. This is Orange Peel in batiks:
And this is what I call Oklahoma Beauty. This particular block has 4 pieces and I'm still on the 3rd piece. If only I didn't have to stop for pesky things like cleaning, washing, cooking or work!
I'm doing it in my favorite fabrics. Will I live long enough to complete these quilts? Who knows...at the rate I'm going I might have to make it to my 90's. We will see. Grandmother made it to 99, so it could happen. Hope you're having a great Monday and that you find some time to sew. Cheery wave from Bev
