new favorite quilt!!!

scrappy trip along.

i am so excited about this quilt.

i had seen a lot of “scrappy trip along” quilts on the internets, but didn’t love them. they seemed way too busy to me. until i happened upon this one. i have been hoarding low volume prints for awhile and knew that this would be the perfect use for them.

so, thanks to some sew-ins with my quilt guild, i was able to knock this thing out.

i love it so much.

i decided on straight diagonal lines for the quilting. mostly because i love it so much and am not super confident in my free motion quilting and didn’t want to do anything to ruin it.

i lost a lot of time trying to decide on the perfect backing. then one fateful day, i found this fabric on sale at fatquartershop.com.

went with some gray quilter’s linen for the binding. the old standby favorite.

and despite having been warned multiple times that this quilt belongs to me and only me, anna insists that i should share it.

when i took it out of the dryer and showed it to isaac, he said, “awesome! can we our dinner on it?”.

    I really like this a lot. You’re right, it’s totally different from the really scrappy trips and a great use for low vol fabrics!

    Love it! Even though the fabrics are definitely modern, that quilt has a vintage feel to it that really appeals to me.
