Which Setting Do You Like?



A productive "laundry day" (translated...sewing day). I wanted to try one of Bonnie's scrappy trips blocks, but one wasn't enough. The top picture is a scrappy bargello (sort of a zigzag), the bottom is scrappy trips around the world (notice that in the bottom pic the center chain in every block is reds). Which do you prefer?

I thought if I made a scrappy Trips Around the World, we could designate it as our "van quilt". You know, for when we make all those trips (that we never take!).

These are big blocks--12-1/2" square unfinished. I hope to sew at least two more tonight. It's hardly worth making quilts less than 80" square since my children are so grown up. So I'll press on with these blocks (get it...press on?? Quilting joke!).
