WIP Wednesday

1. I have spent most of my time finishing up my Scrappy Trip Along quilt.  I have to admit, even though I was reluctant to start this one, it has really turned into one of my all time favorite quilts.  I have never made a scrap quilt before and I really like seeing so many fabrics in the same place.  I made this for my nephew, but at this point I am afraid that I might keep it :)
 The quilt top is done and the quilting is 90% done.
I decided to go with the zig zag layout, which I think is a lot of fun, and then I have quilted along the diagonal echoing the zig zag shape.  Please forgive the iphone photo, this is layout that I went with, although it was taken a few steps ago.
2.  My other WIP is my + and x quilt which I didn't touch this week.  Hopefully that will change soon!
+ and x blocks

  8. When is a scrappy quilt MORE than a scrappy quilt? When it is crafted by you!
