blogger's quilt festival~~~scrappy trip along

I decided to enter another quilt in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.
This quilt is from an Instagram quilt along called Scrappy Trip Along.
I am an active twitter and an IG user, enjoying all the inspiration that can be found there.

I made this lap size quilt with my Kaffe Fassett fabric stash.  Just like the title of one of his books,
I dream in color : )

I hand quilted this quilt with big stitches, using variegated crochet thread.
This is the thread that I used when I began big stitching years ago.  
I decided if I was going to hand quilt a project, then I wanted it to be seen!
I am not a perfect stitcher, but I like the texture that it gives a quilt.

I used a scrappy binding and a favorite Kaffe Fassett print for the backing. 

This was a fun quilt to make.  
Although the pattern was simple, it made a lovely scrappy quilt.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  
I hope you will come back and have a look around soon.
