Whew! That’s a lot of scraps! I finally finished all the blocks for my Scrappy Trip around the World quilt. It really is made mostly of leftover scraps from my stash (and Missie’s – thanks Missie!), although I have to admit that since I started working on it last year I seem to gravitate toward the blue and green fat quarters every time I go to Happy Quilt. It is all blues, greens and one black and white text print strip per block. I tried not to use any of the blues & greens more than twice in the quilt, and the text prints are used about 4x each. I’d love to know how many fabrics there are in here total, but my eyes go buggy if I start to count! It should finish up at 5′ x 7′ which should make a decent sized twin quilt.
I need to figure out what to use on the back and binding. Maybe a big text print on the back? I’m thinking a white binding would look crisp, but would it get dingy really fast? I wish I had more experience to know. What do you think?
