RSC - trying to finish.....

I am working on the last of 9 trip around the world blocks. Each measures 30x30 inches. This last one is teal. Sorry for the bad shots - they were taken last night. I used 2.5 inch squares and added them in rounds for a continuous stitch up to the white round.
All squares cut out.


I was too lazy to lay all of them out again so grabbed this photo. The green block is finished and teal is nearly done. This will pop to work with me today - maybe I can add a round or two?
Trip Around the World blocks

Head on over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and see what other projects are coming together in December.
I was playing with the sampler quilt earlier this week. I have not started sewing the blocks together yet - maybe next week? You can read about it here and here.

  5. The trip around the world blocks are so spectacular. What a beautiful quilt this will be! I'm always amazed to see the RSC sew along blocks. We all use the same colour but there are so many fabrics and hues that each one is unique.

  7. Great progress on the trip around the world. Hand sewing is always slow so don't rush. It will be a gorgeous one when done. ;^)

  9. I love both your quilts, too. The Rainbow Sampler is to die for, and the scrappy TAW is clever and gorgeous. One of those (or two or six) is on my bucket list. Anyway, enjoy your December; if you don`t finish this month, next month will do just fine. :-)
