Scrappy Trip Aroung the World another Bonnie Hunter freebie

I have to say I love all the Bonnie Hunter quilts I've seen as well as her techniques and use of the many specialty quilt rulers for cutting our precious fabrics!  When I saw the Trip Around the World I knew I had to try it, and up to my scrap pile I went, but these were not all scraps - a couple years ago the group from  QUILTING BOARD  had a "Noodle Swap" . Everyone that wanted to be involved got together a specified number of assorted 2 1/2" WOF strips and submitted them to the address of the quilter in charge that mixed them all up and forwarded them on to other quilters in the swap - cool way to get different fabrics, and a great way to make a Scrappy Trip!
This one hung on my design wall for over a year because of an injury that kept me from my quilting, but also because I wasn't sure how to finish it off - I didn't want just a navy border, so added more of the scraps to a narrow border to continue the "trip".

 The binding is all done on the machine with a gold flange, makes it so much quicker to complete the binding stage of the quilt.

I had already used many of those 2 1/2" Noodle strips on an earlier quilt,  I've seen this pattern referred to as Log Cabin on Steroids??  I didn't have a pattern to follow, just sort of went with what I thought would work.


  1. Just found your blog through Quilting Board. Your quilts are gorgeous! Glad you're feeling better. Looking forward to seeing more quilts. I was sorry to read about you losing your kitty. How sad.

  2. I'm very interested in the flange binding. Looks chic!
