WIP Wednesday - scrappy trips

Well, I had grand plans for the layout of this scrappy trips quilt - I wanted to do a different layout than everybody else.........  but, I went with the masses and did the traditional layout :)

I ended up with 49 blocks - and arranged them in a 7x7 layout for a final size of 84x84 - a nice sized quilt!
I am happy with how it turned out, but I am not in love with it.  Maybe after I quilt it, I will be in love :)

I found a lady locally who is going to rent me time on her computerized longarm!  I think this quilt will be my first attempt ::crossing fingers::   Then, I'd love to have a go with quilting my red/white Urban 9-patch quilt on the longarm........
This one I *do* love, so I want the quilting to be fabulous :)

I have disabled anonymous comments - I have been getting a half dozen or more spam comments a day and it's getting old.  I am sorry to those people who don't want to have accounts to sign into, but this is my only option to decrease spam at this point I believe.  Hoping it will stop it all together!

On a quilty note - I do have several more blocks done of my Scrappy Trips quilt (sorry, no pics!), and maybe I'll be able to share a finished top pretty soon.......

tutorial fame

One of my tutorials have made it to ebook form!  Pretty cool I think!  It is my tutorial for my Hunter's Star quilt using charm packs (with HST's and full size charms).

You can find a link to my tutorial on my website here and you can find a link to the free ebook on here  - (it's starting on page 24 of the ebook).........  I really wish I had a better pic of the quilt.... at least the tutorial pics were half way decent though........
