While Scrappy Trip around the World fever spread across blogland, I was taking a much more literal approach.
In our latest correspondence quilt my mum & I have been exchanging 2″ scrappy squares in letters over the past year & a bit.
We cut 2 of everything, kept 1 & sent 1 so we each ended up with the same fabrics.
We sent them in batches of more than 1 at a time though, that would have been ridiculous & taken f o r e v e r !
Inspired by the layout of the gorgeous single chain quilt from Denyse Schmidt’s Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration book, with a scrappy twist! We’re both making this design :)
It’s such a nice feeling to know we have both ended up with the same fabrics in our quilts :) a little of each others scrap stash & all without making a dent in either, funny how that works!
It is HUGE.
& no, the pieced blocks are not all going in the same direction! It wouldn’t be one of my quilts if there wasn’t a bit of topsy- turviness somewhere in it!
