Design Wall Monday, July 2, 2012


Today I've got Scrappy Trips Around The World on my wall.  This is a FREE pattern by Bonnie Hunter that can be found on her website.  This project was started in January in a class hosted by Sunshine Quilt Guild held at Memory Lane.  When the class was finished I had five blocks done and one started.  It is a very quick project using lots of 2 1/2" strips.  I'll be calling my project Kontinental. Being ahead on my UFO this month gives me a chance to catch up on some other projects.  I'll put an inner and a slightly larger outer border to finish it proper.

Mary, Liz and Sue got done with their Crabapple Swaps over the weekend.  I got these on Sunday.  One last swap to get that should be tonight.  It is my hope to separate everyones set and get them out this week.  Maybe someone is just waiting to work on their project this weekend.  Check back in the coming weeks for pictures of completions.  These are going to be really great.  The Crabapple design is another of Bonnie Hunter's that can be found in her book Adventures with Leaders & Enders.  Krabapples will be the name of my project...are you surprised?

I was able to find the black and white check fabric I've been searching for during the past couple of weeks.  You wouldn't think it would have been so difficult to find what I thought would be a "staple" type of fabric.  Rosie's Calico Cupboard had two different 1/4" checks.  One sort of wavy and the other straight.  I purchased enough of both to last for awhile.  I think I'll be using the wavy check as it appears to give movement to the balloons.  This project of my Mom's will be next after Kontinental is assembled.

I have a short week with Friday off and Wednesday's holiday makes it even nicer.  Wish I could manage to have off Thursday, but that's just not in the cards.  See what everyone else is doing via the links on Judy's Patchwork Times.  Happy 4th of July week to everyone.

Scrappy trips is one I have long admired. This is very fun.
The crap apple quilt is another I have marked in one of Bonnie's books. You must be very efficient with your time to get so much done and always seem to have a wonderful finish in the works. : )

Great trip around the world blocks. I've always admired the Crabapple Pattern as well. So many quilts! If only there were more hours in each day.

The scrappy trips around the world is such a fun and easy pattern. Is it a keeper quilt? A gift?? No home yet??
