I put the brakes on the scrappy trip-a-long after 6 blocks when I started to think about cutting into some yardage to make more 'scaps'. It would be one thing if I had planned out a color scheme and layout etc, but since it was meant to be a scrap busting diversion, I decided to stop.
Look! A quilt on a fence instead of the laundry room door!
I am glad I did, because now it is a perfect size for a toddler, about 36" square.
I spent about two hours reading and watching videos about all the different techniques to make a machine applied binding look nice. I selected a wide stitch pattern almost down the center of the binding, maybe just a bit toward the inside. I have to say, it does not look bad!
A print from my stash for the back camouflaged any imperfections in the binding and quilting (especially after it came out of the dryer!)
I have added this one to the charity stack which now totals three.
I looked through the stash to see what I have that will go with the juvenile panels I pulled out the other day and matched up a few.
