Scrappy Trip Quilt Top

I was able to put together my Scrappy Trip quilt top over the weekend. I am so pleased with the way it turned out. My plans are to baste, bind and quilt it this week. I'm thinking aqua binding will set the aqua diamonds off just right.
We are busy here with school and baby appointments but I have a review coming up this week for a free e-book from Fons and Porter so check back for that. Speaking of baby appointments, I have been controlling my Gestational Diabetes with diet and exercise and after turning in my blood glucose numbers this week I now only have to test every other day. I am so grateful for that!!! Thanks to all of you who have sent me messages, prayers and well wishes throughout this pregnancy. I appreciate them all more than you know.


Here's a pic (not the greatest) of what is now our "ice cream" around here. Frozen fruit (berries), a splash of 1/2 &1/2 and homemade whipped cream (all sweetened with just a sprinkle of stevia). Toss all in the food processor and voila! Lower in carbs, high in fiber and antioxidants and so fresh and yummy! This was wild blueberries, red raspberries and strawberries. My favorite is made with only red raspberries!

Have a great day!

I was given a popcorn tin full of 2 inch squares....I've been thinking I would use them to make doll quilts, but after seeing your scrappy trip quilt top, I might be changing my mind.
