Flimsy Finish

I added the borders to my Scrappy Trip Around the World top. This is one of Bonnie Hunter's free patterns. I made 42 blocks and set them 6 x 7 and added  a 4.5 inch border. The top now measures 80 by 92. If I get the binding done today I can pair it with one of my wide backs and move it out to the quilt shack. This will be one more thing (or pile) out of my way.

Even though I had a lot to do yesterday, a good book had me hooked most of the afternoon. Hope the rest of the week will be more productive.

Happy Stitching,



  1. Lovely finish! The scrappiness of it is perfect! I'm curious - what were you reading? :)


    1. finished one by Jana Deleon and started another by Carolyn Arnold, both very good

  2. Such a fun quilt. Love the purple border. Another pile gone is always a good thing!

  3. Wonderful 'scrappy trips' quilt! I loved making this one of Bonnies too!
