A couple weeks ago I came across a blog post about a quilt along that was designed to create a Many Trip Around the World quilt without the organized rounds of color. I thought what a great way to use of alot of the older fabric scraps without alot of preplanning and designing! Here is the tutorial http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/scrappy-trips-around-world.html .
At first I thought I would not like not having a thoroughly thought out plan, but I went to work with my little, trusty Singer Featherweight......
1947 Singer Featherweight - she sews a great stitch!
And now I have a 71x82 very Happy Scrappy Many Trip Around The World quilt top that I LOVE!
