Scrappy Trips Around the World

Finally something to scratch off the Quilts waiting to be quilted list.


I quilted my Scrappy Trips Around the world yesterday. This is one of Bonnie Hunters quilts from Quiltville. I like this quilt even though it still looks a lot like my Scrappy Bargello.



I did add some pinks and a few other colors I had but that didn't change the look much.
I used a wool batting and it made the quilt nice and soft and shows off the quilting nicely.



The thing I like the most about this quilt is it's finished !

Florabunda Block Four


I finally finished block four of my Florabunda quilt. Patiently waiting on block five to be posted.

Most of the fabric I am using in this quilt was left over from my Aunt Millie's Garden quilt. They don't look the same on the white background. You always seem to need so many different fabrics for an applique quilt.

Florabunda


I have been working on Florabunda a BOM Erin Russek of One Piece at a Time is offering.

It's not too complicated so I have been able to keep up. The first three blocks are finished and I am working on # four.
Erin give wonderful instruction on how to do the applique. She makes it almost easy.
