Design Wall Monday #11

On my design wall today is my "Scrappy Trip Around the World" quilt top that I started piecing at retreat in February.  This was a great stashbuster project and is a free pattern from Quiltville - click here.  It looks much better on the computer screen than in real life I think!
All of these fabrics came from my stash, which is so exciting for me... I really am making some headway in using up what I have accumulated over the years! When I first started quilting I bought a lot of darker colours like this, but now I tend to buy brighter colours, so I am happy to clear these out.
Now I just need a border or two to make it a bit bigger...with the 24 blocks it measures 48" x 72".
What's on your design wall today?

  1. I love this! This is one of my favorites to clear out the strip bin. Can't wait to see what you do for borders.
