Trippy

This is my first quilt I’ve really, really finished in quite some time. I used the Trip Around the World instructions here and a fully jelly roll of Uptown Lush that has been sitting in the stash for a while. It’s finished off with straight diagonal quilting. So the squares aren’t perfect… or really even close.  And the “straight” line quilting is wobbly.  But it feel so nice to finish.

I forgot how much I love hand binding.

Marsala? Ok Ok

Last year I did the Pantone Quilt challenge and it was awesome.  Radiant Orchid wasn’t exactly my type of color but I loved the weird psychedelic forest I made out of it and had a great time.  This year’s color is Marsala… even harder to work with.  But I’m game! I’m into it! Yeehaa!

Now, what the hell am I going to make?
