For some time now I have contemplated making a Trip Around the World (scrappy, of course) out of solids. There have been some beautiful ones out there as inspiration and today (Friday) was the day.
I hauled out the solids bin and got the little pieces. Ta-dah! The first block.
You will notice that it is not strip pieced. There are some scraps that will only give a single square, and I want to be able to use those also. It might take a bit longer on the front end, but the results should be worth it.
It is based on 2″ squares and will take at least 90 blocks (depending on my ambitions) for a quilt. But, long trips start with a single step, and that step has been taken.
