Finished Chicopee Scrappy Trip Quilt

Back in August, I started this quilt for one of my nephews going away to college. Here is the finished product! I really love how it turned out!

I didn't have a specific plan for color placement - it would have looked nice with a dark fabric running through the center of each block or something - but I really like the variations in the randomness.

I used a light colored binding on this quilt, and I think it may have been a first for me.

The backing features another flat sheet from Target. I'm nothing if not predictable.

I quilted meandering loops in gray all over the quilt. It's my M.O. for quilting.

I had a hard time letting go of this one, but I'm glad that it was well-received by my nephew. I have a few leftover patchwork blocks that I'll be able to use in another quilt...if I manage to not give it away.

I loved making this quilt. It was so quick and I even enjoyed the unpicking the tubes part. I plan to make another one in this pattern for myself using Nordika and some coordinating solids and oval elements that Jeni recommended on her blog.

Since I'm still recovering from surgery and unable to do any sewing, I hope to get some photos of the Geranium tunic and dress that I made for my daughter's birthday this year. I've been spending a ton of time perusing Instagram, Flickr, and various blogs and I'm so itching to get back in the swing of sewing. A couple more weeks and hopefully my arm and hand will be in working order.

I love it! The randomness does have a nice touch. One of these days I will make one of these.
I hope you heal quickly!
