July has been a big month for quilting in red around here. It is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and it is also the color of my One Monthly Goal project. My goal for the month was to take the 20 Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks shown here...
and get them joined into a quilt top before the end of the month. Not a difficult task, and I did reach my goal, but it took a slightly different turn than originally planned.
|Red Scrappy Trips, 60" x 75"
As you can see in comparing the two photos, the layout of my blocks changed by the time they all got stitched together. Somehow I zigged a little earlier than planned. It's not better or worse, just different. The best part is that the blocks are all together and I have a completed quilt top!
My blocks were made as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2017, using Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Around the World pattern. Her pattern is made with 2.5" strips, but I used 3" strips for my version. My blocks finish at 15".
Just for fun, here are a couple of close shots of some favorite fabrics.
I am linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. I'm also sharing my One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
