Okay the big brown plaid star quilt I showed last week will be a nice gift but it was NOT making me a happy quilter. Now this is more like it...
my first two Scrappy Trip blocks. Oh I LOVE these! The colors, the dots, the chickens.. they make my heart sing! This kind of sewing is better than Prozac!.
I spent a little time last evening cutting some strips. I know I'll need lots more but this is a nice start.
My plan is to use a black/white print in the center of the block with rings of color. I like the idea of some structure in what is going to be a busy quilt.
Oh and I did get the back together for the plaid star quilt. I used my flannel stash and came up with this.
My oldest son said it looked manly...and since it is for my brother that's a good thing. Now to get it quilted and gifted.
Hope you have a productive week. I'm looking forward to playing with the Scrappy Trip blocks and cutting some novelties for the Wiggly Whimsey SAL.
