I've seen so many pretty Scrappy Trip Around the World (from here on out referred to as STATW) quilts and just can't decide how I want to put it all together.
The traditional route:
Or this one, which I think has been the most popular lately:
A little bit different:
Or zig zags: (This version is inspired by a quilt is nice. )
Which would you pick?

I've been away from this blog for about two years and a half years and I'm ready to return.
Here's where I've been in a nutshell:

Eliza's timing was wonderful.
I'd completely had it with my third trimester! My poor hubbie- every other word that came out of my mouth was something mean and snappy towards him. All I wanted to do was nap. And its so nice to have use of my mid-section again.
But if she'd come one day earlier she wouldn't have had a baby quilt to come home from the hospital with. Monday night I finished the binding on this quilt and in the middle of the night Tuesday (early Wed) my water broke. She must have known that the quilt was ready and it was time to be born!
I LOVE how this quilt turned out. These are the fabrics I used. Lots of strawberries and pink.
And of course, my wonderful mom came and spent a week with us to help ease the transition from 2 to 3 kids. She brought a beautiful quilt too. Isn't it so lovely in its pale, purpley-ness

This was inspired by philistine made on flickr. If you haven't checked out flickr lately- run over there right now and prepare to be inspired! Philistine made is one of my favs! I'm always impressed with her fresh color choices.
I wanted to keep my colors summery so I stuck to aquas/lighter blues, pinks, oranges, yellows/golds, grassy and lighter greens and a little brown.
This has been such a fun quilt to work on. I'm such a scrappy quilter at heart. The more fabrics in a quilt, the more fun they are to make!
I plan to have this one (the top atleast) finished in the next month before the baby comes.
