scrappy patchwork hybrid finished.

i fell in love with this quilt the second i saw it. i was also really inspired by this one. i really wanted one of each, but the idea of actually making one of each was a wee bit unrealistic. and still i could not decide which one to make.

 

so . . . i decided to mash up the two into a Steps to the Altar-Trip Around the World hybrid.

 

and here is what was born. i must say that i heart it in all of its scrappy, patchwork-y glory! not to mention it's huge! i think it ended up being 96" x 108". and i might still add another row to the bottom to make it an even 108" x 108".

 

#1 of several to come using nothing but scraps + strips. i'm curious to see how many quilt tops i can eke out of the fabric i have on hand.
