It seems to have taken me an entire year to finally finish my daughter's scrappy trip quilt.
I love this pattern!
Every time I quilt one for a customer I say to myself, "I need to finish at least one for myself."
Well, with a little help from my friend, Trish, I was able to finish this one.
She sewed up at least half of my blocks for me -
thank you, Trish!

My daughter likes brighter colors so this was perfect for her.
And I like the zig-zag setting.
I had exchanged 2.5" strips with a friend in Virginia, "hi" Sherry.
As I quilted this quilt I recognized some of her fabrics - which makes it even more special.
I had this cute orange print fabric for the backing.
I used a Denyse Schmidt green plaid for the binding.
I quilted it in an all-over swirl pattern.
Together, Trish & I sewed up 64 blocks.
It's set 8 across and 8 down - 96" square.
I could hear the squeal all the way from Arizona when she opened it!
I guess she loves it!
