Scrappy Trip is Done!


Stitched in the ditch, all 96" x 96" of her.  




Although I could quilt lots more, I think it's enough.  





Here she is, wrapped around my sewing chair.





Folded up and ready for her new assignment.





Resting pretty on the bed!

(Just in time for my birthday--today!  Shhh!)





I think the reds are going to like this pattern too!

susiloci said...

Un quilt espectacular, que colorido tan alegre tiene!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sharon said...

Love it! You are so fast to already have it finished.

Happy happy birthday to you!

Magpie Sue said...

Belated happy birthday wishes! I think you may have created another convert to Bonnie's scrappy trip method too. I've been wondering what to do with my leftover 2.5" strips, something different. I did a traditional Trip a long time ago... It may be time to revisit the pattern. But probably not quite as big as yours!

Oh I love these scrappy quilts!!
