Peer Pressure


OK, so I succumbed to the peer pressure -- after seeing all of the gazillion other scrappy trip around the world quilts that everyone is making out in blogland, I decided to try to make a dent in my batik stash. So this is what I've been doing instead of cleaning up the dust bunnies in my house. So far, I've made 16 blocks and have plans for 8 more. I told myself it was OK to start another quilt top because I had just finished quilting another one that was in my UFO pile (I'll blog about that one at a later date). I expect to quilt this one quickly because it won't require any custom quilting -- the fabrics and design are way too busy, so I'll just do a quick meander and be done with it.

Now I have to go and finish the 8 remaining blocks....the dust bunnies can wait...

LOL, it is ok to start another top and you are going into the stash so that is a plus!

I agree with Karen...it's ok as long as you're using stash fabric! It's going to be a great quilt!

You beat me to it, Anya! I've been wanting to start one of these too, but haven't got there yet. It's on "my list" though. Lovin' yours!

I did the same thing. It's kinda addicting. I also told myself it was a great way to use up those Jelly Rolls I have hanging around.

And if you have a quilt like this around, people won't even notice the dust bunnies. Another zinger of a quilt!

These blocks and the method for making them are just so appealing! Dust bunnies will still be there, so why not piece blocks first.

Oh I love your scrappy trip along blocks!!! It has been so hard for me resisting this quilt. I know I will succumb to the pressure soon.
