WIP Wednesday

Thanks to our new Boulder Modern Quilt Guild and Denise, I've finally joined the scrappy trip around the world block craze.

I'm not usually one for doing too many quilt-alongs since I have way way too many of my own designs swimming around in my head and not enough time to get them done. That said, now I see what everyone is so excited about. This is such an easy block to piece thanks to Denise's great demo. Love the Elmers glue trick for matching seams.

I've been collecting fabrics in the aqua/blue/lemon/yellow range for awhile now ever since I saw this great eye catching display in one of my favorite Ft Collins shops, The White Balcony. The color didn't come out too great in the original photo but I still remember the impact it had on my creative ideas.

Now I think I'll be making more of these fun scrappy trip blocks. Even have ideas for other color schemes. Who knows  . . .

If you're like me and just never got around to making this one, it's never too late.
Here's the link to the original Scrappy Trip tutorial.

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Hop over and take a look.
