WIP Wednesday

I managed to squeeze in a little time on my ongoing Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks this week. I'm using lots of traditional leafy prints to make a checkerboard center. Then I plan to add some wide borders and more checkerboards. It's a sketch I've had for years now and I'd really really like to wrap it up this year.

Six more strip sets sewn and ready for the "unsewing" part. Sounds like a good thing to do in the evenings in front of the TV.  If you somehow missed out on this scrappy trip craze it really is a fun block to make. I'm following the Scrappy Trip Around the World tutorial by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. It's a great technique and perfect for using up lots of 2 1/2" strips.

I had a little trimming help . . . always worried about cutting into a little paw or tail when they won't leave me alone. Looks like a good time for a lunch break. That's what they want.

Just look at that begging face. Can you hear him?  . . .  "feed me feed me"

There's plenty of other projects in various stages of starting/stopping/finishing. Maybe some of those will show up next week for another WIP Wednesday with Lee at Freshly Pieced. See you next week.
