I am *finally* quilting my American Jane Scrappy Irish Chain quilt. This one was made from strips cut from a FQB of Wee Play, a jelly roll of Pezzy Prints, and a jelly roll of Moda Bella red. The WeePlay has a few squares that were pieced before quilt assembly to utilize every bit of that precious fabric as possible. I am doing diagonal straight line quilting, the same as I did for my original Scrappy Irish Chain I made for MBS. I adore this pattern, it won't be the last quilt I make from it!

fabric: Mill House Inn, Fig Tree & Co for Moda
pattern: scrappy trips around the world by Quiltville (although my strips were 1.5'' wide)
finished quilt top: 84.5''x84.5'' (that is 7,056 @1'' squares!)
I was calling it 'tiny scrappy trips', but it is definitely now ''crazy trips'' haha!
I joined 4 of the blocks together to make one larger block - then I arranged them to very randomly. It made the quilt top look like a maze, LOL. What is weird about pictures - the differences in the blocks don't show up like they do in the pictures - the colors look much more harmonious in person :)
Now, any suggestions on quilting? (remembering I do all my quilting on my Pfaff sewing machine and this quilt top is about twice as heavy as a normal quilt top)
