Christmas Scrappy Trip......

I finally finished my scrappy Christmas trip quilt - just in time!
(It was snowing today so the pictures look a little fuzzy.)
Thank you, Trish, in Mississippi, for piecing most of the blocks for me. 
I seem to get quilts started then get distracted with other things and have a hard time coming back to them.
Anyone else out there have this going on in their
quilting lives?
I exchanged fabrics with my sweet friend, Sherry, from Virginia.  thank you.....
So it's a collaborated quilt.
I did a very simple all-over stipple - it's so busy a fancier design would have been lost.
For the binding I used a chevron fabric which makes it look like candy cane!
The backing is a couple of Christmas prints I used from Sweetwater.
I love everything about this quilt.
Merry Christmas, everyone.....
Here's to more and more quilts in 2018...
