I've been missing out on participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link-ups for the last several weeks. My quilting time has been very limited, and most of that time has been spent on Bonnie Hunter's new mystery. This morning I decided that it was time to set the mystery aside for the day and get back to one of my 2017 RSC projects, the Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks. Last month I shared the first quilt top, made with all the warm-colored Scrappy Trips blocks (in THIS POST.)
Today was the day to get the remaining blocks joined together into another quilt top. There are only 20 blocks, so they went together fairly quickly. Here is the completed cool Scrappy Trips top.
Just like with the first top, I had to look through the stash and see if there were any fabrics just waiting to become a border for this quilt. I found two options to audition. The first is a printed plaid, probably from the late 1990s. The colors aren't bad, but I was wishing there was a brighter green in it.
Option #2 does include some brighter green. In fact, it seems to have all the colors I used in my blocks. This might be the one!! I'm having trouble getting good photos so late in the day, so I'm going to leave them up on the wall together and make up my mind tomorrow. You all know I love to hear your opinions too! Current size without border is 60" x 75", a good size for a throw quilt. If I add a border, I could easily bring it up to a twin size.
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
