WIP Wednesday - More Happy Scrappy Trip!

Today, I am on my way to Austin,Texas to attend QuiltCon! I am traveling a day earlier than planned to avoid the travel interruption of the biggest winter storm we have had in two years. The snow will be welcome, but the timing is never good for this kind of storm.

Yesterday, before the airlines decided to allow changes to restricted tickets (the cheap fares, you know) i needed a project that didn't too much concentration. I decided to pull out some strips that I had cut a couple of years ago from some pastel nursery dots and checks. The fabrics were remnants from Joann, so nothing fabulous, but as I said, the strips were cut, so I stitched them up into another scrappy trip-a-long! (sorry about the awful photo!  I just snapped it with my phone on the way out)




























I think I will add three more blocks and make it a little larger than the last one. If my travel plans hadn't changed, I would be quilting it today and adding it to the donation stack.

There will be plenty of time to finish it later, though For now, I am looking forward to four full days of quilt inspiration!

And also some good Tex-Mex food...
