As promised here is the tutorial for the scrappy Trip Around the World. A great way to use up scraps and diminish that stash. I chose all fabrics that had that soft romantic feel to it in primarily greens, pinks, reds and blues. I am calling it my romance and roses quilts.
|Here are the six strips sewn together and turned around so that you can see how to press them. Press every other seam going in the opposite direction so that your seams will butt up against each other when you sew them back together.|
|Fold your sewn strips right sides together and sew the dark and light strip lengthwise to form a tube.|
|Once you have sewn the tube lay it flat and square up the left side and then cut six 2 1/2 inch strips from that. They will still be in a tube.|
|These are your six tubes unsewn and laid out ready to sew back together. Once they are sewn your now have a block. Keep making these blocks until you have the size of quilt you desire.|
