Crazy Trip Around The World

So, I'm still playing catch up on the blog in case you didn't know...geez, my last post was over eight months ago. I started this crazy trip around the world quilt in the summer of 2009 and finally added enough blocks to make it into a full size bed quilt for my Mom. I love looking at the blocks since they are all made from left over fabrics from other quilts I have made or quilts my friends have made.

I found some wide backing fabric on sale that is a blue tone on tone map print - perfect...directions for the crazy trip. The quilting is done in an all over feather pattern using a blue thread that matches the backing.

Now, I don't know about you, but I save all my left over pieces of binding if they are more than 18" long, and so I continued with the theme of using up odds and ends of stash fabric, by sewing together an assortment of left over binding pieces and actually had enough to bind the whole thing (with more left over...sigh).

Life is still hectic - isn't everyone's? This is a finish from last September, so you can imagine the backlog of posts that need to be written.

I'll do my best to get them written - eventually.

Have a great rest of the week and happy sewing!
